Pop Up Theatre presents a virtual theatre experience this Halloween, with an original play, ‘The Forgotten Man’, written and directed by British expat Scott McQuaid.
This dark thriller features Malaysia’s local talent such as the dramatic host played by Luqman Shuaib. He introduces the story of an attorney, Mr. Darling, played by Bryan Tiang, arriving at a secluded manor house, to conclude business of a will left to the Widow, played by Alexandria Tan.
Upon arriving at the estate, Mr. Darling is greeted by the acting butler, The Thin Man, played by Damien Zachary, and soon discovers that all is not what it seems.
This short, intense production was selected as a part of a worldwide Halloween theatre event called, ‘Whispers in the Dark’. This spooky virtual festival showcases ghost stories performed by various theatre companies from around the world for free on the UK Thornhill Theatre Space Facebook page.
The Forgotten Man will premiere live on Halloween night, October 31st at 8pm local time.

About Pop Up Theatre
Pop Up Theatre is an independent company created by British writer-director, Scott McQuaid. The company was founded in 2016 with the aim of producing original productions for stage and audio theatre. The content ranges from comedy to drama, with short to full-length plays, musicals, and podcast plays. Although the company is based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, its office is virtual, and run by Administrative Director and actress, Alexandria Tan.
Its productions feature talents from all over the world- and true to its name, it does not abide to any scheduling calendar, meaning that their shows literally ‘pop up’ with very short notice, and play for three to four nights before disappearing until their next venture. Pop Up Theatre’s YouTube channel has most of its productions uploaded for free viewing, or at least features a trailer of each of their events. Click on the YouTube link here:
Pop Up Theatre has a dedicated following for its Sherlock Holmes podcast play series, that also features on Spotify.
The company is a non-profit organization with the objective to bring innovative and spontaneous theatre to the mass public on various platforms such as stage, screen, and audio streaming.
