‘The Coffin is Too Big for the Hole’ by Kuo Pao Kun

DBKL rejected the performance permit application of Singaporean Kuo Pao Kun’s play on Opening Night itself. The performance was held as an ‘open rehearsal’ in the rehearsal space as a way to circumvent the ban. In 2001, ‘The Coffin is Too Big for the Hole ‘ was staged in KL without incident.
