Haven't posted anything au naturel lately, so here's a haleconia from my garden. Do you have this species where you are?
The play ended yesterday on a high. One that was second to none. Yes, the tears came, even before the last words had a chance to be said. 10 actors from both sides of the Causeway attempting to hold back the flood. The moment we took our final bows, there wasn't a dam big enough to hold us back. This production meant a lot to all of us and I think, for the first time, the closing held the same meaning. This project started under the late Krishen Jit, probably the most respected director in Asia. It was one of the last projects he did in Malaysia. Performed to an invited one-night only audience, he harboured hopes for it to travel to Singapore and return to Malaysia for it's public showing. That was July 2004.
The last show began with unspoken words. We knew this may just be the last time we ever perform this show. As we took our bows, Krishen was with us and we held our gracious heads high knowing we made his dream come true. We brought it home.
This exotic flower represents all my fellow cast members, production personnel, director, etc. thanking you for the legacy you've left us. Watch it grow Krishen, striking and colourful. May the Gods of Theatre care for you and shine on us. You are missed old man. Thank you for our brief time together.
