Bang Kok

Bang Kok

'Bang Kok' is a 1996 play by American playwright David Henry Hwang. The ten minute piece was commissioned as part of Sean San Jose's "Pieces of the Quilt", an evening of plays related to AIDS and people suffering with the disease. "Bang Kok" concerns two businessmen who share stories of prostitution rings in Thailand climaxing in one of the men confessing to his friend he has contracted AIDS. In a very dramatic moment, the stage explodes apart and the audience listens to the story of the young Thai girl who passed on the disease.

"Pieces of the Quilt" opened in 1996 at the San Francisco Magic Theatre, but "Bang Kok" was not included due to its specific casting needs. Still, "Pieces of the Quilt" is still performed in schools throughout the country, featuring works by Lanford Wilson, Edward Albee, and Tony Kushner.

Currently, "Bang Kok" is not published.
