5 Things You Didn’t Know About ‘After Earl : Before The Fall’.
“Well met!” we were greeted as we walked into the closed preview of ‘After Earl : Before The Fall’ by Kudos Productions. After we were given the house rules (silent phones and no flash photography) by a well-mannered imp, the lights were dimmed and so begins the show which led us to discover these fun facts about their twisted fairy-tale about a frog’s love story.
1) The show is definitely not your typical fantasy fairy-tale.
If you thought the show is going to be about fairy-godmothers and unicorns, you’re in for a bittersweet treat. This dark love story is cleverly written to highlight the fears and joys of the modern world, sprinkled with some pop culture references, social structure and beliefs, this show will entertain you with the stories and current thoughts on humanity.
2) This cast is tighter than my grandmother’s knitting.
Cast members play multiple roles from acting roles to stage management and producing the show. In Kudos Productions, they believe that everyone should understand each other’s roles; for example an actor who understands the mechanics of stage management brings together for a more wholesome show. The actors were all auditioned and selected based on their skills and talents. You will be able to participate in a Q&A talkback with the Kudos Productions artistic team after the Matinee shows.
3) Good music completes the story.
Live music will be played by Anwar Hadi accompanied by Christine Liew’s angelic singing throughout the show arranged by cast member Harith Tiew, who will be playing the role of Jasper.
4) “The Olde Maketh The New”
Written and directed by Jude James, the show was originally written as a 12-minute piece in 2012. Be sure to catch the expanded version of the story this coming weekend.
5) Yes, there’s more!
If you have fallen in love with the story and characters in Earl’s world like a Netflix addict discovering a new series to binge on, fret not! There will be a Part 2 of the story. For more info, follow Kudos Productions on Facebook and Instagram.
