A staged reading of Kee Thuan Chye's new play will be held at the KL Performing Arts Centre (KLPac) in Sentul, Kuala Lumpur, on Saturday, Sept 16, at 2pm.
Entitled The Swordfish, Then the Concubine, it is based on two episodes of the Sejarah Melayu. But it's really a humorous satire about modern-day Malaysia.
Kee's last play seen on the KL stage was We Could **** You, Mr Birch in 1994.
Also being read on the same stage that day will be Tarap Man by Ann Lee. This one's about an idealistic reporter uncovering a scandalous story about neglect and unfair practices.
The readings of both plays are directed by Zahim Albakri.
Admission is by donation of RM10.
