TOP GIRLS (2012, Arbampai Ratanapanu, A+++++)

I like the last scene of this stage play very much. The performances of Warunya Mungaew and Rasima Garnjanaguntiga in that scene are superb. The dialogue in that scene is as classic as some dialogues in Mike Leigh's films. This is not a kind of dialogue which is full of "memorable sentences", but it's a kind of dialogue which reveals bitterness in life, bitterness which is repressed for so many years until one cannot hold it inside any more.

TOP GIRLS is written by Caryl Churchill, and it is inspired by many things, including the same stories which inspired the film POPE JOAN (2009, Sönke Wortmann, A+) and HEAVENLY CREATURES (1994, Peter Jackson, A+++++).

One of the characters in TOP GIRLS is Griet, which is inspired by the painting MAD MEG (1562) by Pieter Bruegel the Elder.
