Chye sent me a rather nice PDF file with all descriptions of all the plays on it. I don't know how to post it here, but will forward it to anyone who'd like it.
This describes the extract which will be read (on Sunday 19th 7.30):
In a Singapura courtroom concubine Haslina is on trial accused of associating with a fundamentalist sect and the attempted murder of the royal consort, Tun Dara. As she pleads her innocence the judge must decide whether she is a victim of a conspiracy. Written in true epic style with a wonderful sweep invoking Brechtian parallels.That's a great last line to put on the posters when the play comes here ... or would be if more people knew Brecht!
And talking about plays, playwright Ann Lee asked me to pass on word about the Women's International Playwriting Conference in Jakarta and Bali from 19 - 26 November, which she will be attending. Details here. The full fee is USD250 for all days, but there's a special rate for students and others who wish to for single day (includes plenary session, workshop and performance from morning to night) - which sounds a good deal! (And a good excuse for a break.)
