‘Spilt Gravy On Rice’ (also) goes to Singapore!
After its successful run in Kuala Lumpur, Spilt Gravy On Rice travelled across the causeway where it played to packed houses at DBS Arts Centre from 25 February – 2 March 2003. Production was once again helmed by Dramalab, directed by Zahim Albakri, and starred Rahim Razali (Bapak), Bernice Chauly (Kalsom), Charon Mokhzani (Zak), Reza Zainal Abidin (Darwis), Sean Ghazi (Husni) and Soefira Jaafar (Zaitun).
Spilt Gravy On Rice marked Dramalab’s third staging in Singapore after Gold Rain & Hailstones in 1999 and A Flight Delayed in 2000. Writing about the Singapore staging, The Flying Inkpot awarded Spilt Gravy On Rice four stars out of a possible five and heaped praise upon Jit Murad‘s writing. Reviewer Kenneth Wong ended his review by noting “the next time [Dramalab] make the trip across the causeway, I strongly recommend you give their taste of homebrew a try”.
