K.S.Maniam will be in Penang for a session:
Date : 17th March 2012
Time : 10.30am
Place : China House
183B Victoria Street and 153 & 155 Beach Street
K.S. Maniam is a prolific writer with novels, plays and numerous short stories to his credit. His important body of work has been described as “imbued with the vibrancy of the Malaysian landscape, both human and physical”. In 2000, he received the Raja Rao Award for his Outstanding Contribution to the Literature of the South Asian Diaspora in New Delhi.
His play, The Sandpit: Womensis has been the subject of numerous local and international academic papers, and his iconic plays of the 1980s and 1990s and has been restaged several times by Five Arts Centre (1991 and 1994), and directed by Krishen Jit.
Thus this new staging of The Sandpit after 18 years by a different director, Chee Sek Thim, is a highly anticipated event.
