BANGKOK — Time, longing and the human heart are in play when a school building is to be demolished and students gather to ponder relationships, time and the universe in “Madam Ree Building.”
Twenty years after their first secret kiss, Somyos and Wipha reunite again at a reunion held to say farewell to a building where many memories lie buried. Along with their friends, those past unfinished stories resurface and begin to change the present.
The play is inspired by American playwright Craig Wright’s production about a man who dreams of winning back his ex-girlfriend at their 20-year high-school reunion in “The Pavilion.”
Director Jaturachai Srichanwanpen chose to challenge the story with a reverse analogy to question how time affects relationships and conflict between individual identity and social norms.
Tickets are 500 baht and can be reserved online.
The play will show in Thai with English surtitles. It will be staged at 8pm on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Mondays, with 3pm matinees on Sundays beginning Feb. 9 before taking a bow on Feb. 27.
Democrazy Theatre Studio on Rama IV Road can be reached on foot via MRT Lumphini Station’s exit No. 1.
