Opium at Closing Time

Amberjade Arts presents their first feature-length theatre production: "Opium at Closing Time"
Written & Directed by Tarrant Kwok
Music by Yanwen
Technical Design by Ng Wei Hock
Stage Management by Kelynn Ng & Jeremy Tang
Produced by Wendy Wong & Engku Armand
Featuring Alexis Wong, Samuel Low, Grace Ng, Hannan Barakbah, & Brendan Vinsent

Yen, a woman of many triumphs - is starting to forget. Or has she already forgotten? Her son Chai is trying to help her, but what can Chai do when his Ma is stuck in the past? Did she actually go and see Sudirman’s concert, or was that his funeral?
An exploration of a disquieting human condition - Opium at Closing Time is an unflinching dive into the often disjointed experiences of those suffering with Alzheimer’s and those who care for them. It’s also a story of Malaysia, of pivotal history experienced on the personal scale. Of the choices that were made, and the consequences we must suffer.

With characters out of time and in the present portrayed by Alexis Wong, Samuel Low, Grace Ng, Hannan Barakbah and Brendan Vinsent - this is a play that is meant to challenge the audience's perception of time, memory and the meaning of family. Music by pianist and composer Yanwen ties together nostalgia and Ma’s present urgency in a haunting dance.

Written by Tarrant Kwok, who has adapted The Fall of The House of Usher for Theatrethreesixty in 2018 before, Opium at Closing Time seeks to also preserve the stories passed down only through hushed word of mouth. Drawing from these real vignettes and historical documentation, Opium brings historicity down to the eye-level, in the hopes we can break our generational traumas.
