In conjunction with My.Oz, the Australian High Commission’s year-long cultural programme to celebrate 50 years of relations between Malaysia and Australia, The Instant Cafe Theatre Company presents Alias Grace, an award winning theatre production from one of Melbourne’s most prestigious theatre companies, Malthouse Theatre.
The play, adapted for the stage from Margaret Atwood’s Booker Prize winning novel by Laurence Strangio, has been performed in Australia to critical acclaim. It is about 16-year-old Grace Marks who, in 1844, is convicted of the brutal murder of her employer and his pregnant mistress.
