Lilly Csorgo, one of Wellington’s newest theatre arrivals, is bringing her play Bangkok to a Wellington Audience this month.

Bangkok was workshopped as part of the prestigious RAW Reading Series in New York City, and the Banff playRites Colony. It was staged as part of the Canadian National Arts Centre's On the Verge Festival and the Toronto Fringe Festival, and now Tenacity Productions bring it to Wellington for the first time.

Long after Tom and Faith are convinced there is no point, they persist in their once-yearly meeting by the pool of an over-priced Bangkok hotel. Faith, an embittered and drink-sodden shadow of her former vivacious self, compels Tom to remind her of the way they were.

Bangkok is a stimulating drama that explores people who are rootless, groundless, travelling the world and not having any real connections with anyone – so they form these weird connections with people who they otherwise wouldn’t connect with.

“… the plot flip-flops between a frustrated, angry present, and thrilling, blissful past. The past becomes like a drug for Faith as she begs Steve to provide memories she can sink into, forgetting her present state. It is fascinating to watch this reverse downward spiral as Faith becomes more and more obsessed with losing herself in the past, all the while being pulled back to the present along with the audience.” Jessica Padykula, SceneandHeard.ca

"A story about life, love and the desire to reach for something higher."
