T he Miss Tomorrow Pageant is a beauty contest spoof. The final round of the competition takes place in Bangkok, where, four of the five finalists are from Southeast Asian countries. The fifth finalist, who is also Asian, represents America. The competition progresses through the traditional swimsuit, evening gown, and extemporaneous Q&A sections. Just before the winner is announced, Miss America drops dead. Finding the answers to how and why drives the story from that point on.
T he play is an “in-your-face” comedy that poignantly addresses stereotypes of Asian women. In addition, the play stresses the importance of the newly launched Association of Southeast Nations (ASEAN). Family Entertainment.

It's very rare to come across an original play about the ASEAN Community, feminism in Southeast Asia, America's historical role in the region, all packaged into biting witticism. Hits very close to home. Hats off to the playwright, the cast, and artistic direction. This sort of creativity is just what we need.
The Death of Miss America was a fun, wacky experience that showcased great performances by up-and-coming Bangkok actors. This marks a great beginning to what will hopefully be a revolution in the live theater culture of Thailand.
Well done! A funny and thought-provoking play.
What a hilarious cast! They represent the stereotypes well. A good laugh and an even better message.
Very cleverly-written satire and great entertainment. …two thumbs up.
I laughed so hard I was in tears.
It challenged me, but in a good way. I was surprised by the cast and the quality.
Finally a place in Bangkok to enjoy American style theatre. Looking forward to more from Culture Collective.
I really enjoyed The Death of Miss America. ...jam-packed with pure entertainment and a real wake up at the end.
