Parah‘ tells the story of four Form 5 students who are studying in Kuala Lumpur. Melur, Hafiz, Mahesh and Kahoe are the best of friends despite coming from different races. They absolutely love hanging out together and can often be found at Melur’s house, either studying or just spending time together. These four youngsters are the epitome of the ’1Malaysia’ concept that everyone has been trying to nurture among the youths today.

One day, Melur discovered that a page from a literature novel belonging to her mother had been torn out. Curious to find out who did it, she approached her three friends but to no avail as all of them denied doing the deed. Piqued by Melur’s insistence on finding out the truth, the boys also become curious as to the contents of the torn page from the novel entitled ‘Interlok‘. The four find themselves bombarded with many questions as they dig further, questions that touches their personal identities. What power does a word have in shaping reality? Is civic nationalism possible in any society that is obsessed with race?

The cast of ‘Parah’. This provocative play will be happening at KLPAC from 1st till 6th February 2012
