Now, accomplished TV and stage actor Sani Hussin takes the stage as the husband to share his side of the story in Best Of (His Story), written by Haresh Sharma and directed by Alvin Tan. What happens when the estranged couple reunite at the Syariah court? What does he say to a wife seeking divorce? What can he say? How would this change his view of what “home” means? Just as his wife had shared her day with the audience, he offers us a glimpse into a day in his life, his past, his dreams... and his beliefs. He too is not a stereotype. But after today, he may well be a statistic.Languages: EnglishDepartments: English Language and LiteratureCategories: Play
