Staged in an intimate café setting, Mahsuri (And Other Peculiar Tales) revamps four riveting Malaysian legends with a clever, modern twist. An autistic boy sits in the corner of the café. Unable to manage his stress and anxiety levels, he is given a book of Malaysian fables to calm his nerves. As he reads, the café and its patrons evolve into a backdrop for four harrowing tales. With original music and lyrics, witness Pontianak, Bawang Merah Bawang Putih, Mahsuri and Puteri Lindungan Bulan as the tales unravel before the boy's eyes, capturing his attention and captivating his heart.

PREVIOUS PRAISE FOR LIVER AND LUNG PRODUCTIONS:
"Told in contemporary English, the stories of Mahsuri, Bawang Putih Bawang Merah, Puteri Lindungan Bulan and Pontianak explode with music and colour thanks to the production’s committed, vigorous actors and stellar compositions." - Mahsuri, Daily Seni, 2016
“Director Shafeeq Shajahan making a virtue of low-budget necessity by letting a bare stage flow seamlessly… definitely an improvement on the grossly overproduced Broadway version” - London Theatre Guide, Kiss of The Spider Woman, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, 2012
“Shajahan showed a nuanced and intelligent direction… exhibiting a depth of talent and ensuring an emotive and layered performance that the socially incisive subject matter deserves” – The London Tab, The Wild Party, Bloomsbury Theatre, London, 2014
“The exploration of loss and how two broken hearts rarely look the same is sensitively considered. The songs were well written and performed... keen to see an other musical produced by them” - The Savage, Justify My Preferences, Etcetera Theatre, London, 2015
- Title was changed to "Mahsuri (And Other Peculiar Tales)". Diff 2016-10-07 04:19:00
