A Night at the Theatre in KL to See My Play

I took a quick trip to Kuala Lumpur to see a production of my new play, “Alone in a Bar,” at the Short & Sweet Theatre Festival 2016. Well, it wasn’t really my play, because brave director, Vinna Law, took some bold creative choices and turned it into a physical theatre piece with pre-recorded dialogue.

I never could have imagined it in a million years, but the actors put a lot of hard work and passion into the product which I’m very happy with. It turned out to be an emotional piece that certainly gets the audience wonder. I’m sure I’ll get the chance to see a conventional staging of the piece at another time, but I enjoyed seeing how different people can see different things. So bravo to the entire cast and crew for trying something completely different.

I was also happy to finally meet Vinna Law as she’ll be joining me and two fellow actors on stage in January as we do a lightly-staged reading of my new full-length play, “The Last Bastion,” as part of penangpac collaborative events for 2017. I’m so looking forward to that!

Okay, now it’s time to head back to Penang.
