After rave reviews at the Edinburgh Festival this past summer, OYR takes to the road again with it’s “daring, dangerous and disturbing” version of the true story of Asian super-criminal Charles Sobharj. Set against a lurid late-70s backdrop of disco and dementia, Sobharj and his Quebecois lover and accomplice, Marie-Andree LeClerc, lead a gang of drug-addle punks on a murderous international spree.
In the late seventies a gang of vicious petty swindlers went on a murder rampage throughout Southeast Asia, leaving at least a dozen international tourists brutally slain. The ring leader, Charles Sabraj, uses his hypnotic powers on all of his entourage, though effected most is his Quebequois lover/accomplice, Marie Andree LeClerc.
This is a dramatic treatment of a true story. What lured a timid small-town Canadian medical receptionist in to the dark labrynth of abject emotional and sexual slavery? One Yellow Rabbit co-produces Serpent Kills with Toronto’s Crow’s Theatre.
