Matilda and her puppets, Pierrot, Columbine and Harlequin, are trying to save the animals in Papa Gorgonzola’s circus from their life of misery. With a plot that takes the audience on an imaginative journey from Italy via Africa (to capture the fabled “Gorilla in the Mist”) to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, the knockabout antics of the Commedia dell’ Arte characters – as well as Punch and Judy – provide plenty of fun and excitement.

Matilda will need the resourcefulness of the Malaysian animals and birds she meets as well as the help of the people of Kuala Lumpur if she is going to be able to give the circus animals their dignity and if they’re all going to take part in the Brickfields' 'Carnival of Freedom'.

A sense of madness greets Vince and his girl-friend as they arrive at the squalid farmhouse of Vince's hard-drinking grandparents, who seem to have no idea who he is.

Nor does his father, Tilden, a hulking former All-American football player, or his uncle, who has lost one of his legs to a chain saw.

Only the memory of an unwanted child, buried in an undisclosed location, can hope to deliver this family from its sin.

Berjaya Corporation Berhad proudly presents
a magical whimsical musical by PAN Productions!

Have you ever wondered what happened to all your favourite fairy-tale characters beyond “happily ever after”?

Well, as it turns out, happily ever after proves to be rather elusive for Snow White, The Mad Hatter, Prince Charming, The Red Queen, Little Mermaid, The White Queen, Little Red Riding Hood, Peter Pan and the Big Bad Wolf...

Life, especially married life, is no Wonderland as it turns out.

In this musical comedy, Gloria, a young girl seeks out the help and advice from her favourite fairy-tale characters for the secret of ‘happily ever-after’. How will she find her happily ever-after despite her over-bearing Fairy Godmother, a meddling Guardian Angel, and a whole host of over-the-top characters intent on giving their two cents worth? Will love triumph in the end?

Lifted from the FB Event page:'But that’s what this is, isn’t it? The ultimate bitch fight.'

Cock, written by Mike Bartlett, is a witty play with a punchy story that takes a playful, candid look at one man’s identity. Following the difficulties that arise when he is presented with a decision that will define his being.

The play is based on John, who after taking a break from his current relationship accidentally meets the girl of his dreams. Filled with guilt and indecision, he decides there is only one way to straighten this love triangle out...

Cock premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in the UK and was an absolute hit!

Crave presents four characters, or perhaps four aspects of human nature set in an unnamed city.

Two men and two women, each only having a letter for a name, are linked through various relationships in which the ferocity of craving
someone, or something, is palpable.

British playwright, Sarah Kane paints four portraits of the turbulence of the human heart as these four individuals navigate through love, loss and desire.
