Ever played Cluedo at least once in your life?
Board games are such delightful treasures, especially in this crazy nano-speed digital world we live in today. The AQJ family used to have Cluedo tournaments at least 3 times a year in the past, and I always end up being out of the game when I had all the clues in hand and about to announce my deduction.
How about being part of a live Cluedo, watching and listening to every line and mannerisms portrayed by actors and then participate in the “interrogation” part of the play?
Vvveerry interrresting… 🙂
The earlier runs of this localized Shear Madness were more serious compared to the show we watched on Saturday night.
All sorts of innuendos were slipped into the dialogue seamlessly (we’re talking about politics, current social issues, trending events… be prepared to laugh till you ache!) and there are times when actors have to improvise their interactions/ lines based on audiences’ line of questioning.
The ensemble cast of Qahar Aqilah (hairdresser), Marina Tan (beautician), Phoon Chi Ho (Inspector), Na’a Murad (antiques dealer), Junji Delfino (socialite) and Jason Leong (Sergeant) certainly have loads of chemistry and innate comedic timing in delivering the punchlines.
Sometimes so subtle, that you find yourself giggling about it 15 seconds late 😀
A definitely refreshing break for ANYONE to be part of this show because this whodunit has different endings, depending on audience votes at the end of the play.
So, Klang Valley-ians, what are you waiting for? Catch this gem at PJ Live Arts before you say to yourself :
“Aiyah… why-lah I din go when still got time?”
Translation: “Oh Dear, why did I not watch the play when I had ample time to plan for it?” 😀
