Tribute Play to Dato’ Syed Alwi

Our guests, who personally knew the playwright, the late National Laureate, Dato’ Syed Alwi,  recount and share not only their stories and experiences learning from the man, but also about working on his plays with him. This interview is both a tribute to and in a small way, a documentation of what this playwright from Taiping has contributed to Malaysian theatre.  Dato’ Syed Alwi wrote both in Malay and English.

Produced by: Sharmilla Ganesan

Presented by: Lim Soon Heng
