| |
Thanks to KLpac for giving me and my partner Josephine a chance to review the play of Our Sister’s Son during the opening date on 1st August 2013. The opening show was full house!

Kuala Lumpur, 2nd August 2013 – Our Sister’s son: The Story of a Boy Through The Eyes of his queens is the latest play written & directed by Mark Beau de Silva featuring the lineups of Roax Tan, Amelia Tan, Douglas Wong, Bella Rahim & Ashraf Zain.

The story of the play is regarding Ah Mei (played by Amelia Tan) who knows that her boy ah Ren (played by Roax Tan) is different from typical boys. Ah ren doesn’t like typical boy activities such as football, fishing and etc. Instead, he would prefer to sing Cantopop with his quirky aunties. Currently, Ah Ren has grown up and he has left his home. Ah Mei and her sisters are left in their kampong house located in Kulim. While in the house, Ah Mei and her other two sisters recall and imagine how Ah Ren’s life would be, for being “different”.

Multilingual presentation with doses of Malaysia Cultural flavor!
The play was presented in English, Bahasa Malaysia and Hokkien.
The setting of the show is in Kampung Area and most costumes are either traditional or common attire in Malaysia setting.
It is a play which practically brings the Malaysia Kampung atmosphere onto the stage.

A tackle on sexual identity issue in local norm!
Sexual identity crisis Is a common issue nowadays. While some community can accept it with open heart, some community are conserved and find it hard to deal with the situation.
The play has intended to give you an insight of how an “unconventional” boy’s life would be in our social setting. The acceptance, rejection and struggles in search of sexual identity has been well-depicted via this stage play!
(It include scenarios in the school, park and etc)

Magnificent award winning casts with splendid actings!
Roax Tan, Amelia Tan, Douglas Wong, Bella Rahim & Ashraf Zain are notable actors and actresses in Malaysia stage play! You guys can expect to see some fine acting and some commendable acts on stage by these lineups!

Overall, me and my partner Josephine really like the stage play. Our favourite actor is Ashraf Zaim because he is really funny and we think that he’s awesome for playing so many different roles (male and female roles) for the same play. Of course, we like the other casts as well.
Thanks for all the splendid acting and thanks to the production team for the unique show!

It is a pleasant experience which will give you an insight of how someone’s life would be like when he/she is in the struggle of sexual identity crisis.
