14 April 1996 – 23 April 1996 @ Guinness Theatre, The Substation


Invisibility is a bold new play by Quah Sy Ren, directed by our Resident Director, Kok Heng Leun. In the most chaotic time in the history of China, after the period of the Three Kingdoms, many sought to learn esoteric skills such as the art of making oneself invisible. What would a modern urban man do with the skill of invisibility? How many around us still seek this still?
