"WRECKS" by NEIL LABUTE
"So many times I have 'kari makan' roles where I just play a Chinese gangster who speaks with a thick accent for laughs... roles like Edward in Wrecks are substantial ones that get me excited" said Patrick Teoh, the solo performer in 'Wrecks', the play I would like to review. Wrecks is a one man play written by Neil Labute which was performed at the KL Performing Arts Centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia between 13th and 22nd November 2007. Of all the productions I have seen in the last year, this had the most impact on me not only because it was a brilliant soliloquy, but because it was a poignant and moving exploration of the human soul, it kept the audience guessing and had a good twist at the end.
The whole piece was an ongoing monologue featuring Edward, a loving father, a successful businessman and a grieving widower. The scene was his wife's funeral where he candidly shared his story with us, of the life he had lived, and the woman he had lived his life for. The simple set came as quite a shock to the audience
