One night in March 1912, on the deck of a ship dashing towards Europe. While other passengers laugh, have fun and dance, a man shies away. He bears a secret that has become too heavy for him and will unburden himself from it in the dark. This young doctor is running away from Malaysia where he has worked for five years, in the middle of the jungle, until a mysterious woman came to ask for help …

A feverish tale of a race against death where passion mingles with madness, where the obsession over a woman is similar to the amok, this sudden fit of murderous rampage.

The French Festival 2018 presents -exclusively in Malaysia- this play adapted from Stefan Zweig’s short story;  Alexis Moncorgé’s brilliant interpretation earned him the Molière (French national theatre award) 2016 for Best Male Newcomer. [Play in French with English subtitles]

Comprising of non-professional actors, the company KOPI THEATRE -which has been making the French expats in Kuala Lumpur laugh for more than ten years, brings you this year a play revolving around a sensitive topic, i.e. euthanasia. For as J.-P. Martinez -the playwright- says: “One has to choose for subject the worst tragedy in the hope of making the best comedy.”

The starting point of the play: a man who is in a deep coma following an accident. His relatives, i.e. his brother and sister are consulted to decide whether they should keep him artificially alive when in fact, they haven’t see him for a long time and don’t really know what to decide.
Then enters his presumed partner who teaches us more about the circumstances of the accident. These new elements will, in a most cynical fashion, make our characters lean continuously one way or the other.

Kindly note that all revenue from the show will be given to the ADFM, the Alzheimer Disease Foundation Malaysia. [ Play in French ]

Practical info :   RM 60
