“Life Sdn Bhd: People” comes to Ipoh!
For first time, Ipoh folks will get to catch the 13-year running show conceived by Malaysia’s First Lady of Theatre, Faridah Merican, in the little town itself, at RTM Ipoh, Jalan Dairy on Saturday, May 6.
For the unfamilliar, this show is not your average theatre performance, featuring instead real people and their real life stories.
It’s a chance to glimpse rare slices of personal yet genuine memories and moments, shared on stage.
Interestingly, one of them is none other than Joe Hasham, co-founder of the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (Klpac). Those curious to know what Joe has to say about coming from a Lebanese migrant family in Australia, should definitely check it out.
Other cast members have equally if not more riveting stories to share. I definitely recommend watching the show to hear how these regular, yet spectacular human beings dealt with various struggles including mental health, family tragedy, challenges in an interracial marriage, memory of a loved one and so on.
Yes, that intertacial bit might be coming from my own husband, Sukhbir Cheema, who is part of the cast.
Prepare to laugh and cry along to this humorous and yet poignant, inspiring and life-affirming show.
There’s a discount promotion for bulk purchases, so call me to find out more! I am helping to book the tickets for the show.
The last date for booking and pre-purchase is tomorrow (May 5) since afterall the show is on the 6th.
You can still walk in on show day, although, I highly advise pre-booking to take advantage of the promotion 🙂
Hope to see you guys there!
