Relive one of South East Asia’s most terrifying legends.
Brought to you by the award-winning creators of Sepet The Musical, Liver & Lung’s brand new production Melur The Musical retells the harrowing story of the Pontianak: hell hath no fury like a Malayan woman scorned.
Set in Colonial Malaya during the Malayan Emergency, the musical chronicles the lives of two women, Melur and Cempaka, bound by love and friendship but separated by conflicting values.
Namely, they have married the most different of men.
Cempaka’s husband, Sir Wilson, is the British High Commissioner, tasked with keeping Malayan order. Meanwhile, Melur’s husband, Si Aman, is a Silat warrior involved in the anti-colonial rising. As tensions escalate in British Malaya, Sir Wilson reigns terror on Si Aman and Melur, savagely murdering them both.
Months pass and Cempaka bears her first child, a beautiful daughter. All seems fine until Wilson and Cempaka slowly experience the wrath of a supernatural deity, Melur, now a scorned Pontianak, thirsty and determined for revenge.
