Traitor, or hero? Set in a post-apocalyptic Malaysia where constant war and strife abound, the upcoming production Jebat follows the life and tragic death of Hang Jebat. While there are many stories on Hang Tuah, this is likely the first English language stage production in recent history focusing on Hang Jebat. Described as The Actors Studio’s biggest production for 2023, the show boasts almost 40 performers on stage performing to specially composed live music, with a mix of silat and mixed martial arts battle scenes, amazing sets and costumes, multimedia design, and more. We speak to Joe Hasham OAM, the play's Director, Artistic Director & Dramaturg, and actor Zul Zamir, who plays the role of the titular character.
