We hope you enjoyed this year’s Malaysian Night! With that over, there’s only one event left for the current committee before we step down. That event, of course, is finding a crew of motivated, dedicated and capable people to take over for the upcoming year. So we are proud the present the manifestos of the candidates for the upcoming CUMaS AGM!

A few events by our friends around the UK: the Chinese Cultural Society is putting on a hilarious comedy, "Somalian Pirates", this weekend.. And the Universities of Newcastle, Northumbria and Durham are putting up a joint production, the North-East Malaysian Night, at the end of the month.

2. [CCS] Somalian Pirates

"A joke is a serious thing" – Winston Churchill

This year, the Chinese Cultural Society is bringing you two hours of non-stop, back to back hilarity. "Somalian Pirates" is one of the funniest modern Chinese theatre productions.

When two Chinese hypocrites are rescued from a group of adorably absurd pirates, they are portrayed as national heroes, but their lives take an unexpected turn when the public find out the truth. Bizarrely, they fall into the hands of the same group of pirates again, and begin a journey of redemption…

Join us for a story of integrity, loyalty and love, and for a night of laughter!

The play will be in Chinese with English subtitles.

Date: 7th, 8th and 9th March
Time: 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Venue: Wolfson Hall, Churchill College

£8 for CUCCS Members
£10 for Non-members
£15 Combo Ticket (Somalian Pirates + "Take Me Out" (非诚勿扰))

3. North-East Malaysian Night 2013

University of Newcastle, Northumbria University and the University of Durham proudly present the North-East Malaysian Night 2013!

What’s a brother worth? More then a love lost in pretence, more than riches gained through deceit?
A brother’s merit is measured through love in lies & riches. To lose one’s heart, will one leave all behind & trek a life with lies?
Love from pretence shows no prudence in keeping anything razed. A bitter sweet tale of love & family on the edge of felicity & misery.
