We have often heard our grandparents talk about their experience during the World War II in Malaysia – how the Japanese ruled our country with an iron fist, the cruelties and the harsh times that they faced during that time and how thankful they are to be able to enjoy living in a peaceful country now. Despite the harshness of it, many still seem to be inspired by the stories and the lessons that can be learnt from it. Although movies like Band of Brothers, Saving Private Ryan, Empire of the Sun and Schindler’s List makes an interesting watch, it also gives the viewers a glimpse of how life was during that time.
If you are a fan of war stories, be sure to catch ‘At A Plank Bridge‘ , a performance brought to you by The Actors Studio from 17th till 21st January 2012. The story is about two men who accidentally meet on a back country road during World War II, just after the surrender of the Japanese occupation army. It tells the story of Fook Leong’s chance encounter with Chandran, who attacked Fook Leong thinking that the former was a bandit. While their initial confrontation is easily resolved, they discover that there is a far deeper conflict between the two of them as their destinies collide.
