12AM

Its the title of a play I'll be involved in as part of the cast. I supposed It's quite a challenging way to kick off 2006

Honestly, its rather freaking me out that we only have 3 weeks!!! I've never done any performance in such a short period of time and suddenly I felt that I'm running out of time. Got my script yesterday and both roles aren't easy to play, rather challenging for me, even to memorize the scripts itself takes me to almost midnights

Here, a brief intro by The Actors Studio (cut and paste from a promotional e-mail). Come support our local theatre...and me!!!

Which scenes I'm acting in? Three In The Morning and Love Sonnet

    1. Faro Rides Again
    At 1 am, a husband has just come home to bed. To keep his bossy wife from

    2. Sleeping Together
    At 2 am, two young women in the same room, strangers to each other, discuss
    and provoke a taboo subject – their sexual preferences.

    At 3 am, a middle-aged lady leaves her husband alone in bed. However, while
    trying to re-examine everything about her life, she finds that she can't
    remember anything. Not even her husband’s name.

    4. The Underachiever
    At 4 am, a journeyman comedy writer with low self-esteem gets consultation from
    his often sarcastic wife, about life and believing in himself.

    5. I Want To Hold Your Hand
    At 5 am, a young lady is experiencing a sickness, which she calls
    'dinosaur hour', in a red-eye flight. She holds on to an older lady's hand
    in an attempt to regain composure.

    6. Love Sonnet
    At 6 am, a Chinese mother, while writing a poem for her son’s 30th birthday, reminisces over the sweetest moment she shared with her Malay husband 30 years
    ago - the last time they had sex.
