Editorial Reviews

Drunk is not my favourite of all the performances in this year’s Bangkok Queer Festival. Written and directed by Panuwat Inthawat, who is still a university student, the play was an ambitious but tedious ensemble of four sub-plays, from a guy who’s paranoid that he might have slept with a mafia member’s sister; two gay guys who fight over a foreign guy; an actress who’s entangled between reality and the play she’s in; and a guy who’s deciding whether to kill himself or not.

Tap-a-nan Tanadulyawat played the paranoid guy, but not only was his paranoia overacted, he failed to distinctly differentiate his acting when he played another character in the next chapter. Paspawisa Jewpattanagul played the jealous girlfriend and although she gave a fairly entertaining performance, when it later transpired that the person on bed was actually a guy and not a mafioso’s sister, we’re left wondering what the point of it all was. Tarnthep Bansongkid plays a foreign guy who’s being hit on by two gay guys, but like Tap-a-nan, there was almost no difference in either his speech or acting when he later plays a Thai actor in another scene.

In the play notes, it is hinted that there might be some connection to one another but I failed to grasp that and felt it was just four story ideas randomly put together.
