Fa Abdul‘s Tales From Malaysia Baru | 新馬來西亞軼事 is a two-hour play set in an old Chinese house in the heart of George Town. It tells the colourful story of Aunty Kang, a 65 year-old tailor and her nosy, dark-skinned ‘Malay’ neighbour, Kak Kiah who dwell on what’s not right in Malaysia one fine hazy afternoon. They are soon joined by Aunty Kang’s son, Ah Boon, and Nathan, a fellow neighbour.

This remake of Big Nose Productions‘ 2013 blockbuster In a Nutty Shell digs deeper into the dynamics and complex layers of relationships among and between Bolehland’s race-based citizenry in the context of a new political climate.The script is strategically timed to reflect Malaysians’ current ‘wait-and-see’ approach to judging the new government and its policies, while also taking aim at the reluctance of many Malaysians to see this as a time for change within their own mindsets.

Idiosyncrasy and idiocy take turns to show themselves in the energetic banter of the lead characters. Aloyah Bakar (Aloyah Varleite), Sharmila Kanagalingam, Lawrence Chin and Ivan Alexander Francis Gabriel headline this production – a cast of home grown local theatre favourites, while Tan Seoh Chen, Roshini Chandran and Nicholas Fletcher play multiple supporting roles
