SYNOPSIS

Synopsis

A foreign journalist is taken to task after writing some objectionable articles. A university exchange student tries to organise a forum on campus and encounters obstacles. The lives of these unlikely individuals meet and intertwine in The Necessary Stage's latest production. Characters clash, tensions run high, and truth is questioned. Can we turn back time and return to a harmonious past? Who is allowed to speak out for what they believe? Do we welcome the views of foreigners? Or should they Balek Kampong
