Stage Drama - Gayan Kanishka Rajapaksha's new stage play.
Proudly presented by AIMAREAL PTY LTD  at the Besen Center, Burwood..

Compared with most animals, we humans engage in a host of behaviors that are destructive to our own kind and to ourselves. We lie, cheat and steal, carve ornamentation into our own bodies, stress out and kill ourselves, and of course kill others. ‘Stripped Killer’ in its inimitable manner, peeps much insight into why an intelligent species seems so nasty, spiteful, self-destructive and hurtful. Starring: Chandani Seneviratne, Bimal Jayakody, Jagath Chamila, Jagath Manuwarna,Sulochana Weerasinghe. Music by: Nimesh Fernando. Production Manager: Kasun Marasinghe
