Love on stage
KLPac’s Theatre for Young People opens its 2011 season with A History of Falling Things. The phobia-filled comedic love story written by British playwright James Graham will be staged at Pentas 2, KLPac, Sentul Park, Jalan Strachan at 3pm.
This love story revolves around two phobic cyberspace love birds Jacqui and Robin who communicate solely via webcam. Restricted to living indoors because of their fear of falling satellites, they foster their adoration for each other on the Net. But will what brought them together be the thing that keeps them apart? Tickets are priced at RM23 (standard) and RM13 (concession). For more information, call 03-4047 9010.
