Red Marks is a compelling satire about sexual harassment, otherwise known as sexually transmissible marks, a canker worm which is eating deep into the fabric of the society. The plot of the play revolves around the personal dilemma of Laura, an innocent University undergraduate with powerful emotions and rare determination who becomes the unwitting target of the concupiscence of the self-righteous philanderer, Bao. Will she succeed in escaping from his vicious and repulsive seduction and so preserve her virginity, or will she naively succumb to his lustful intrigues and allow herself to be deflowered? The play gives a beautifully poised insight into what happens in situations where the powerful feed fat on the powerless.
