UN rights office to host original Khmer play

THE Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights will host a free performance of an original play at Chenla Theatre on Monday, in celebration of the 62nd anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Darkness in the Sun charts the story of Kamsot, a young man from Svay Rieng province mobilised into military service after the fall of the Khmer Rouge, and his life during the turbulent 1980s and uncertain 1990s. The play “portrays the human struggles against poverty and discrimination brought by the war”, OHCHR said in a statement on Wednesday. It will begin at 6:30pm.
