Stories for Amah was first staged in 2002, to critical and commercial acclaim. It was restaged a year later, again to full houses. It garnered 5 nominations at the BOH Cameronian Arts Awards and rave reviews.

Written by Mark Beau de Silva, the play centres on Ruth de Souza, a young serani woman who is conflicted by the Chinese upbringing on her mother’s side and the Eurasian identity imposed on her by her father. Having just relocated to Kuala Lumpur, Ruth finds herself in this new place, fresh from the death of her grandmother, memories of her childhood growing up in Kulim, then the barracks of PDRM with her strict policeman father come flooding back – carving a different side of her that was never shared with her Chinese grandmother.

17 years later, this landmark Malaysian play that examines what it is like and what it means to grow up as a ‘lain lain’, will be revisited by its original director Joe Hasham OAM.
