Bondage

One of the most audacious and thought-provoking plays by Asian American playwright, David Henry Hwang, Bondage deals with issues of sexual power dynamics and racial stereotypes by placing a fully disguised man and woman in an S&M parlor engaging in provocative role play.

Why should someone come see your show?

As much as kinky body suits and whips are concerned, the dangerous element in this play is the role play of races. And you never get to see what the actors look like until the final scene.

If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?

Batman, because the audience will be guessing who is under the masks till the very end of the play.

If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe this year, besides your own, what show would that be?

A Very Unpleasant Evening at the Rockerfeller Rink Sometime Late December…ish. It’s also directed by Chris Lam and will simultaneously play with Bondage at the same venue!
