"2SomeS" at KLPac

KLPac Presents
Synopsis :

Three plays. Two characters reach. A relationship that makes each of the 2someS inseparable. The two-character plays place the audience right in the centre of intense personal conflict. Whether spoken or unspoken, it is such conflict that is the key ingredient for good theatre. These three plays exemplify the best in contemporary two-handers onstage globally today.

The Secret Love Life of Ophelia (Eng)

Directed by Christopher Ling
Featuring Alfred Loh & Sharon Lam
Lighting Design by Sazali Sim
Sound Design by Pat Omar

Hamlet and Ophelia express the infinite variety of their passion for each other in a work which takes the form of letters in verse. Renowned British playwright, Steven Berkoff's play charts the lovers' story beneath the surface of Shakespeare's Hamlet. With a muscularity of language tempered with tenderness, Berkoff's play is shot through with images of courtly love, sexual desire and intimations of future tragedy.

A Life in the Theatre (Eng)

Directed & Designed by Abdul Qahar Aqilah
Lighting Design by Sazali Sim
Two actors, one a veteran and the other a novice, go through an entire wardrobe and a cycle of onstage and off-stage roles.

In a series of short, spare, and increasingly raw exchanges, David Mamet's A Life in the Theatre showcases the estrangement of youth from age and the wider, inevitable, endlessly cyclical rhythm of the world.

The Bench 《长椅》(Cantonese – with English subtitles)

Directed & Designed by Kimmy Kiew (丘雨锦)
Adapted by Kimmy Kiew based on the translation by Kwok Jia Shen from the original Russian text
Featuring Tan Eng Heng (陈永兴) & Ling Tang (邓壹玲)
Lighting Design by Sazali Sim

A married man keeps lusting to fulfill his desires. A married woman hungers for true love. The man entices her to have a one-night stand with him. But doubts abound on both sides.
Alexander Gelman's The Bench explores the subtleties of black comedy in the guise of an adult relationship.
