The Fall of the House of the Usher was presented by theatrethreesixty as part of their #wearetheathreesixty2018, a 6 weeks compilation series with 3 intimate plays to celebrate the birth of Malaysia Baru. The script was adapted by Tarrant Kwok, based on the original famous short story by Edgar Allen Poe. It is also directed by Nicole-Ann Thomas, who previously directed The Pillowman and Bare Beckett, so YEAH… That should give you a hint of what the show looks like.
Accompanying the spirit of a new Malaysia, theatrethreesixty is presenting #wearetheatrethreesixty2018, a 2018 edition of their annual wearethreesixty arts festival in the new reality of freedom of expression.
Taking place from the 19th of July until the 26th of August, the festival, which will be held at Lot’ng Space, will showcase 3 theatre productions. The productions will be performed by the nation’s rising artists as they perform a series of diverse theatrical productions.
The best dark stories are told with a piercing balance of casualness and intensity, and this adaptation of Martin McDonagh’s play does exactly that. The wonderful people from Theatrethreesixty brings to you a breathtaking staging of The Pillowman.
