Lake Worth Playhouse

The boy-meets-girl plot of this Rodgers and Hammerstein musical is woven into the historical context of the British Imperialism in Asia. It is also the story of a clash between cultures and the dynamics between Great Britain and The Orient. The King of Siam invites an English governess to come to his country and teach the children of his many wives about the modern world. Yet he himself resists changing his traditional role as the benevolent patriarchal dictator until the bold young governess wins his heart and his respect.

A Pulitzer Prize finalist and a long-running Off-Broadway hit, David Rimmer’s play chronicles the coming of age of two teenaged couples during the turbulent ‘60s. The language is frank, but unfailingly funny, as the four struggle with impending adulthood and their awakening sexuality. Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Beach Boys—ever present as a telling counterpoint to, and emotional anchor for, the lives of the young foursome. (Professional)
