THEATRE

Most of life is hell. It's filled with failure and loss. People disappoint you. Dreams get shattered. Hearts get broken. Innocent people die. The life we want, we will never get. The truth is, we are for the most part of our lives, unconscious of our misery. What if you have the chance to make things right - will you take it? What if the only right thing to do... is the wrong thing? Written and directed by Fa Abdul, Entropy: Part Mystery, Part Betrayal features Nicholas Pereira and Lawrence Chin, a not-to-be-missed virtual theatre brought to you by penangpac.

Date: Now until December 31

Ticket price: Minimum donation of RM15
