I was quite pleased to get this email last night. My new, yet-to-be-performed short play will be performed as part of the SS Theatre Festival in Kuala Lumpur. The festival will be sometime in late September or early October.
I was especially happy that this script was selected (I chose two, but only one per playwright is accepted) because it is quite different for me. As the title suggests, it’s a satire set in the office of a new government agency called the “Industry Review Board.” This new agency calls a writer in for a meeting to see if his writing has been compatible with the changing tones of society.
I really like this play because it has passion and gives the audience quite a bit to think about.
I’ll have lots more about this play and my participation in the festival in the months to come, but I wanted to share the good news!
