***A RELAXED PERFORMANCE
Open to everyone, but specifically adapted for children on the autism spectrum or with other sensory/communications disorders.

Richard Harding Gardner
Richard started his working life in theatre in London, Madrid, Nairobi, Johannesburg, Houston and Los Angeles. Here in Malaysia, he has directed the stage productions of the Alan Ayckbourn's RELATIVELY SPEAKING, the comedy-with-music SOUVENIR, the interactive comedy whodunit SHEAR MADNESS, the musical comedies NUNSENSE and A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM, as well as adapting and directing CHARLEY'S AUNTIE! Richard trained as an actor at Webber Douglas, London, and was educated in the U.S. with a degree in Philosophy from UCLA, Los Angeles.
Chae Lian initially trained as a performer, receiving her Honours degree in Drama (Acting) from Carnegie Mellon University, USA. Returning to Malaysia, she co-founded Gardner & Wife Theatre with Richard in 2001 and the company is now Malaysia's leading presenter for family theatre. In 2006, Chae Lian became the first South-East Asian Fellow in Arts Management at the John F Kennedy Centre for Performing Arts in Washington DC, the national cultural institution of the United States of America. Since 2013, she has also managed PJ Live Arts, Selangor's first independent theatre facility.
Natalie Chong joined Gardner & Wife Theatre in 2006 as Media Manager. As the role of traditional media in theatre marketing evolved, Natalie broadened her scope of work until she became General Manager, which, in arts-speak, means that she has also taken on the responsibility of the accounts, office administration, marketing and production coordination! Every August she travels to see even more children's theatre – so far visiting London, Edinburgh, Wales, Belfast, Amsterdam, New York, Washington DC, Florida and Paris!
