Spilt Gravy

Jit Murad works on a play tentatively titled ‘Skittish’…

Beginning as a series of comedy skits involving a group of siblings, Skittish was a work-in-progress by Jit Murad that eventually grew into Spilt Gravy On Rice. Production publicist Lorna Tee had suggested naming the play after a Malay proverb like Jit Murad’s acclaimed Gold Rain & Hailstones which was staged in 1993.

More information about the origins of Spilt Gravy On Rice can be found in Jit Murad Plays, an anthology of Jit’s works published by Matahari Books. The book is currently out of print but limited copies are still available from spiltgravy@gmail.com.
