Full-length, Dark Comedy

By Anna Ouyang Moench

During a mission trip to Bangkok, a Korean Christian girls’ youth group discover that their revered pastor has hidden a camera in their hotel bathroom. Their communal rage and disillusionment fuel increasingly violent revenge fantasies amidst the no-holds-barred neon bubblegum sex-tourism mecca of Bangkok. MAN OF GOD is a funny feminist thriller about that moment when girls realize the male gaze has been watching all along—and decide they’re definitely gonna do something about it.

“With MAN OF GOD, Moench has taken a simple situation, four independent-minded characters and an abundance of wit and crafted a show that restores your faith in theater.”

“Funny, creepy and unflinchingly observed”
—The Los Angeles Times

“MAN OF GOD is an extraordinary and important piece of storytelling.”
