The Cruelty and Absurdity of ‘Losertown’

There is clutter everywhere. The dark foyer and the performance space are decorated with dim fairy lights. There are scribbled papers on the walls, a rack full of clothes and a mattress. A live band blasts music in the background while the audience squeeze their way to the seats. The experience is claustrophobic but serves as an invitation into the protagonist’s tumultuous state of mind.

Losertown, an experimental one-woman musical theatre, follows actress, musician and stand-up comedian Hannan Azlan as she takes on Joseph Campbell’s A Hero’s Journey. Her path is graced with helpers: band mates Coebar Abel, Ian Francis Khoo, Endee Ahmad and Khairil Imran. Together, they aim for stardom.
