TW Of babies flyer 1Event: “Of Babies (Not Really) and People” presented by TheatreWorks
Venue: Various (see details below)
Run: 12th Apr – 25th May 2013 (selected dates)

“Of Babies (Not Really) and People”, presented by TheatreWorks and written by 16-year-old Nur Sabrina Bte Dzukifli, is the winning entry in the Youth Category of last year’s 24-Hour Playwriting Competition.

The play will be staged in a host of public venues as part of a community project initiative by both TheatreWorks and the South East Community Development Council, and it touches on universal human issues such as friendship, marriage, parenthood and religion.

Gerald Chew directs while A Yagnya serves as assistant director.

It is performed by Adib Kosnan, Clarice Jena Luo, Kevin Lagrange and Nabilah Said.

Official synopsis:
“Maslindah and Jamal are happily married and yearn for a child.
Jenny, being the best friend of the couple, is satisfactorily unhappy.
Perhaps what she has been missing is a child… She then decides to have a baby.

Experience the play’s entertaining take on the complexities and universal truths about life, love and surrogacy in relation to race and religion.”

Performed in English with some Bahasa Melayu.

There will be a post-show discussion after each performance.
