Thunderstorm 雷雨

Thunderstorm 雷雨 ⚡⚡

Following the 2017 sold out production in English, the leading lady of Malaysian theatre Dato’ Dr. Faridah Merican will now be directing Tsao Yu’s masterpiece in Hokkien and Cantonese. The Actors Studio will be staging the epic family saga “Thunderstorm” 《雷雨》 with the support of The Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Malaysia as part of its 30th anniversary celebrations made possible by Yayasan Hasanah.

Now Thunderstorm is no ordinary play. It is considered one of China’s most famous modern play written by Tsao Yu otherwise known as China’s Henrik Ibsen. Set in Ipoh, this new version of Thunderstorm will see an almost brand new cast featuring well-known actors and award-winning personalities.

At the heart of it, Thunderstorm is a drama about family, society and corruption. Chou Pu-Yuan is the head of a wealthy, successful and seemingly happy household. But a storm is gathering. For behind the veneer of respectability lies of a web of intrigue, and a dark family secret.
