The Five Vengeances is a queer love story that follows Fury, a raging warrior out to avenge the murder of her love Bella by the detestable Overlord. With only the aid of her old friend, Shotgun,
Fury has to infiltrate the corrupt ranks of the Overlord’s Empire to exact her revenge. However, members of the royal family have their own devious plans, and Fury soon finds herself tangled deep in the snake pit ultimately realizing that vengeance is never a painless road. A comedic twist on the classic Jacobean Revengers tragedy, T5V gives the feel of 1970’s kung-fu cinema.
Affair of Honor brings together a powerhouse team of collaborators — from playwright and director Jovanni Sy to Jessie Award winning multimedia design collective Chimerik 似不像 — to create this action-packed spectacle.
