  1. SD: A Midsummer Night's Dream by KL Shakespeare Players

SD: A Midsummer Night's Dream premiered at penangpac and klpac in February 2020, and scored success with audiences who roared with laughter. There is not a dull moment in the 100-minute long show. The lockdown prevented it from touring, but now with schools and theatres reopening, we are bringing back this much-loved show. In the production, six male actors play all roles, deploying also puppets and masks. Together they create the play’s three worlds: the realm of the court and the young lovers; the magical and dream-inducing forest of spirits and fairies; and the pragmatic world of the down-to-earth but comic Mechanicals.

From Nov 19 - Nov 20: tickets start at RM55.
