About

The Actors Studio unveils its biggest production of 2024. Written by Joe Hasham OAM and directed by Dato’ Dr Faridah Merican, The Sisters Soong is a brand-new play that relates the story of the famous and somewhat infamous sisters; three of the most influential siblings of 20th century China.

Born in China and educated in America, “Big Sister” Ai-ling married banker H.H. Kung, who later became Finance Minister, “Red Sister” Ching-ling married the Father of Modern China, Sun Yat-sen, and “Little Sister” Mei-ling married Chiang Kai-shek.

In this modern retelling that alternates between fact and fiction, the playwright has taken some artistic license and cleverly woven this family saga that spans a century with the help of a narrator.

The Sisters Soong will be brought to life by an award-winning cast with choreography by Kenny Shim, costuming by Beatrice Looi, music by Tan Zhi Yong against a set by Scenographer Yusman Mokhtar and live music under the baton of Maestro Lee Kok Leong.

About TAS Seni Teater Rakyat
Since its inception in 1989, The Actors Studio has been presenting groundbreaking theatre in Malaysia. In 2006, it created The Actors Studio Seni Teater Rakyat arm to bridge the gap between the arts and the people in line with the National Arts and Culture Department’s efforts to ‘merakyatkan seni’.

The Actors Studio Seni Teater Rakyat’s inaugural project was Alfian Sa’at’s “Anak Bulan di Kampong Wa’ Hassan” which toured to five villages in Peninsular Malaysia. Since then, it has re- staged many classics such as “Philadelphia, Here I Come!”, “Uda dan Dara” and “Rashomon”. It has also revived interest in traditional art forms through productions like “A Night of Cantonese Opera” and “Mak Yong Titis Sakti”.

The Actors Studio Seni Teater Rakyat has also been a key driver behind the development of new content. It has premiered works such as “The Taste of Water”, “Kandang” (based on George Orwell’s Animal Farm), a BM version of Harold Pinter’s “Betrayal” and “Dato’ Seri” (based on Macbeth). In addition to on-going series like “Don’t Let...” and “Dancebox” to promote new content, it also initiated The New Play Project for emerging playwrights.

In 2016, it mounted a year-long Shakespeare 400 season. Two productions “Shakespeare Goes Bollywood” and “Richard III” was named the “Best of 2016” by the BOH Cameronian Arts Awards. Richard III won 6 other awards. The Actors Studio Seni Teater Rakyat continues to bring quality and accessible theatre with a strongly Malaysian voice. The Actors Studio just celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2019.
