“Welcome to the Department. Your number is coming up shortly.”

Please don’t mind the guy in the corner, he doesn’t know he’s unemployed. Yes, you will be attended to shortly. The woman over there? “Till death do us part”. You don’t want to know. Oh yes, we will understand you - Malay, English, Chinese, we all speak it. That boy over there? Family. Estranged. Stuck in his head. I hope you brought your payment - don’t be the daydreaming father in the corner. He’s been here awhile.

A site-specific performance specially devised by theatrethreesixty for the Blossom Arts Festival, L5-7- 44 is about the consequence of attachment. Directed by theatrethreesixty's artistic director Christopher Ling and written by Penang-based playwright Yasmin Bathamanathan, it is an exploration, if you like, of how fallible we are as human beings. Performed in English, Bahasa Malaysia and Mandarin, it asks the universal question: how many of us truly can move on? How do we deal with the nature of these choices? Clinging to the past may be comforting, but skeletons are the least of the problems you can sometimes dig up.

Please take note: L5-7-44 runs for approximately 1 hour. Do wear comfortable shoes as there is no seating allocated for the audience.
