The King & I

2012.1 - The King and I

Frankston Arts Centre : January 2012


Brief Synopsis

It’s the 1860’s and the Western world is closing in on Siam. Hoping to give his family the necessary knowledge to survive in this New World, the King of Siam hires for his children a British governess, Anna. At first, Anna and the King struggle to find common ground between Siam and British attitudes. Soon though, the two opposites fall in love. Meanwhile, Tuptim and Lun Tha have a hidden romance even though Tuptim belongs to the King.
