OK LandOrganised by: M1 Singapore Fringe Festival
Performed by: Circle Theatre
"A sardonic portrayal of the behaviour of people from different classes and ideologies in a world of contemporary capitalism and consumerism."
—Bangkokbiznews on OK Land (translated from Thai)
"...various reviews have pointed out that watching this play is like looking in a mirror. We get to know our society, ourselves, and the people around us once again through the atmosphere of Angel Land and through every character."
—Workpoint Today on OK Land (translated from Thai)
A night that looks just like any other night in Angel Land. People come to a convenience store named OK Land. They buy what they want and go back to where they belong.
But tonight, it's different. A sense of hunger and hopelessness is palpable.
An aunty is hungry. She rushes into the store and demands to talk to the tycoon owner of this mega chain of convenience stores.
Meanwhile, a few customers start to see a man holding a video recorder, but who does not know who he is, and why he is also here.
OK Land looks at debates and perspectives on Thailand's current socio-political climate. The work poses an important question: Why are people still haunted by the ghosts of poverty and inequality in the land of smiles, if there are already givers, helpers, and philanthropists?
