Testimonials
I have known Chris for many years as we were formerly members of the prestigious National Youth Theatre of Great Britain and acted many times together in the West End. Chris was a delight to work with - a natural and accomplished actor and quite frankly an outstanding Theatre Director. From his work I saw staged in London I am not surprised he has reached such a high level in Kuala Lumpur. My deepest wish is to see Chris direct in London, we are missing his talent over here ...

Christopher Ling’s recent staging of Tony Kushner’s epic two-part saga is without a doubt one of the highlights of Malaysian theatre this year. The theatrethreesixty director already proved his prowess as a theatre maker when he staged Part 1 (Millennium Approaches) in 2014. Ling’s daring treatment of a play that’s heavy on tough issues and social commentary definitely earned him brownie points with us. ... Ultimately, Ling’s staging proves that honest storytelling is all it takes ...

As with all Christopher Ling productions, this was an extremely well-oiled ship. His selected performers were largely en point and their costumes were simple but extremely elegant. Despite the minimal look, LOVE AND INFORMATION has truly stunning production design; it burns itself into the mind and leaves a lasting impression.
