KAJANG, APRIL 4TH 2018 – The UNITEN Library auditorium was roaring with applause last Tuesday (27th of March) as the story of Ptuih, Helium and Maseh Dara came to a satisfying conclusion. The characters, which were played by Ammar Dzulkifli, Jaie Azlan and Ally Hazrin respectively, stole the audiences’ hearts despite their questionable morals and their mental issues thanks to brilliant and hard, raw acting. The play, entitled ‘SUPERPTUIH! Dan transit kaler magenta’, was received overwhelmingly well by audiences. The play focuses on the relationship of three siblings, and how they deal with their corrupt father while touching on the crumbling integrity of the society around them. Most of the play is set at a fictional KTM station, where the complex, yet loving relationship between the three siblings is deconstructed for the audience to observe.
