God Bless Cambodia

 

Review


A chronically single man spends four months travelling the world to find the love of his life, but mostly encounters—unknowingly according to him—prostitutes. The title is incongruent with much of the plot, as only 10 minutes of Randy Ross’ one-man show takes place in Cambodia and nothing good happens to him there. The play moves between Boston and other countries as Ross awkwardly recounts—in a tedious tone—his relationships and sexual experiences, one of which involves a cringe-worthy dance with a towel. The show is also an uncomfortable experience because of Ross’ exoticization and objectification of foreign women, whose skin colours he fixates on. He characterizes them mostly with offensive stereotypes and spreads his serophobia– fear and aversion towards people living with HIV–by saying African women will likely give him HIV. I felt kinship with the women Ross has dated, as his awkward and misogynistic show had me itching to leave the entire time. – Matthew Stepanic
