This is the outcome of a script writing contest held last term (2nd term, AY 2012-2013) by Animo Teatro, a recognized school organization of my school. When I saw this poster, my heart skipped a beat. This is the realization of a story I made up, a fictitious tale concocted by my mind. This is the realization of something I wrote on a piece of paper, then typed, then submitted as merely an entry to this contest, not at all expecting to win it. It brought me both excitement and fear.

Excitement. This script was something I worked very hard on. I had multiple sleepless nights just thinking on how the dialogue should flow, how I can make the transitions seamless, and what I want this play to say to its audience. I was excited to as to who will bring my characters to life. I was excited to be a part of something that hopefully would influence the people in some way; may it be a jolt of emotion, an answer to their question, or just pure entertainment.

Fear. The fear of being criticized. The fear of being judged. I don’t know how people will take the story. Will they like it? Will they hate it? Will they get the message? Even though sir Micko Yabut did some major revisions on the script (given that I never had a major role in any musical production) and God knows I need his help, revision and guidance, the essence and the story is still there. I would like to take this opportunity to say that if the audience identified any event in the play remotely close to my personal life, please bear in mind that the play is FICTIONAL. I made it all up. It came from my imagination. Don’t assume that the scenes in the play occurred in my real life. They didn’t. Some may have been inspired by some events, but this not an account or a re-telling of them.

This play is not just my play. Firstly, I made this play with my best friend, Li Badar. She is the musical arranger. She looked for the perfect songs that suited the message of that certain scene. She was my critic when it came to the story and the dialogue. She accompanied me during those late nights. Our friendship grew because of this script. Secondly, this is also Animo Teatro’s play. Without them giving me this opportunity, I wouldn’t be part of this year’s Threesome. Moreover, they are the heart and the limbs of this play. It is them who will bring my script to life. Lastly, this play is for those who can relate with the characters. If you see a portion of yourself from the character or see an aspect of your life in this production, then you’ve given my work true meaning. This play is for you.

Just to clarify a few things, the annual Threesome play usually showcases a “three-story-in-one” type of deal. However, this year’s Threesome is basically made up of two. Both stories, however, have THREE major characters. That is why it is still a Threesome production.

I don’t know if this flowchart is serious or not, but it is a growing issue among the people of the world. It must be solved!

To pee, or not to pee? That is the question. Everyone who has ever gone to a movie knows this predicament- whether ’tis nobler to suffer the slings and arrows of painfully watching a movie when you have to relieve yourself, or to take arms against a sea of porcelain and miss a few minutes of a movie you’ve paid to see. To help you determine the best possible time to pee during a movie, I’ve created this flowchart.
