12-8 Written by SOK Samithi

Written by SOK Samithi
Directed by SOK Samithi & Marika Els
Produced by Phnom Penh Players

From midnight to morning, as the city lights shine, a small Phnom Penh convenience store becomes an oasis of possibility. Hok and Ally, employees of the store, deal with customers and each other as they ruminate on the state of their lives, the love they once had and the ambitions and fears they share for their future.

’12-8′ is an original one-act play that deals with themes of transition and change, desire and uncertainty, as seen through the lens of two young, once-intimate adults who meet again working in a convenience store. Written in an episodic format, scenes change from intimate and tender exchanges to puerile and humorous.
