Melur the Musical

From the award-winning creators of Sepet The Musical, Liver & Lung’s brand new production Melur The Musical retells the harrowing story of the Pontianak, and is set during the Malayan emergency in Colonial Malaya. The musical chronicles the lives of two women, Melur and Cempaka, bound by love and friendship but separated by conflicting values, and by having married men who are practically polar opposites. Things take a turn when Cempaka's husband, the British High Commissioner, commits a murderous crime and the characters experience the wrath of a supernatural creature, now a blood thirsty Pontianak determined for revenge. We find out what's in store at this musical from Shafeeq Shajahan, the co-founder of Liver and Lung Productions, who is also the director, writer and composer for Melur the Musical, and Vasilis Konstantinides, a pianist and composer for the musical.
