What would you do if given a chance to change that past? Would you take it?
When customs conflicts with your modern values, which do you keep?
When Many’s whimsical decision to buy an antique mirror leads to a journey through time and space, she is taken from her friends and family to meet the man who she has been dreaming about every night: Khun Luang Akarathep Warakorn. With French gunboats on the shores, Many and Thep must fight for Siam’s independence. Taweepop (Two Worlds) presents the strength of love and the beauty of customs, through a mirror, a woman and a choice.
Taweepop is a Thai, time-traveling, historical romance fiction that has been made into a play, as a well as a tv drama. The story centers around the main protagonist, ‘Many’, who is an independent woman in the 21st century. She is transported a hundred years back in time, into the period of the Franco-Siamese war, where she meets her love interest, ‘Thep’, and his conservative mother, ‘Lady Sairs’. Chaos ensues as Many navigates the foreign terrain of love, tradition and politics.
This year, ThaiSA is adapting Taweepop into an english musical, and we need lots of help! Along with the cast for major and minor roles, we are also looking for individuals who are interested in performing for Thai Traditional Dance, TCN Modern and Muay Thai.
