The return of Sri Burapha: Memoir Of Freedom to the stage reminds us of the timeless teachings of the revered author and social activist

- +

At the ending of the 1937 novel Khang Lang Phap (Behind The Painting), author Kularb Saipradit, also known as Sri Burapha, wrote: “I die without the one who loves me, but my heart is fulfilled that there’s someone whom I love.” 

The character ML Kerati writes this on a piece of paper to Nopporn, a younger man whom she loves but has gone on to love someone else. This line and the couple’s ill-fated love story is one of the best-loved and most remembered in Thai literature.

Director Pradit Prasartthong has written all the songs and will perform as well.
