Thunderstorm 雷雨

Thunderstorm 雷雨

Following the 2017 sold out production in English, the leading lady of Malaysian theatre Dato’ Dr. Faridah Merican will now be directing Tsao Yu’s masterpiece in Hokkien and Cantonese. The Actors Studio will be staging the epic family saga “Thunderstorm” 《雷雨》 with the support of The Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Malaysia as part of its 30th anniversary celebrations made possible by Yayasan Hasanah.

Now Thunderstorm is no ordinary play. It is considered one of China’s most famous modern play written by Tsao Yu otherwise known as China’s Henrik Ibsen. Set in Ipoh, this new version of Thunderstorm will see an almost brand new cast featuring well-known actors and award-winning personalities.

At the heart of it, Thunderstorm is a drama about family, society and corruption. Chou Pu-Yuan is the head of a wealthy, successful and seemingly happy household. But a storm is gathering. For behind the veneer of respectability lies of a web of intrigue, and a dark family secret.

2019年适逢艺人馆三十周年庆,吉隆坡表演艺术中心即将再度上演戏剧大师曹禺先生的著作《雷雨》,由拿督法丽达美利坚博士执导。2017年呈献英文版的《雷雨》深获好评,今年,拿督法丽达美利坚博士再次担当导演,并挑战以粤语及福建话呈献《雷雨》,使其既贴近本土且能发展出全新面貌。《主要演员阵容出现不少新面孔,包括徐世顺、陈美君、爱美丽亚、郑雨萍、陈彦衡、龚杰尉、Mark Beau de Silva及陈浚。由导演拿督法丽达美利坚博士率领的创作团队也不容小觑,其中包括服装设计Beatrice Looi、布景设计Paul Hasham及灯光设计Yusman Mokhtar。《雷雨》不以1930年代的中国天津作故事背景,而是搬到了怡保,展开了一段发生在锡矿大亨周家与平民鲁家两个家庭纠结复杂的悲剧故事。
