A Wedding, A Funeral & Lucky, the Fish
Written by Dora Tan

A Wedding, A Funeral & Lucky, the Fish goes to extremes to show how marriage for Singaporean women might still very much be a milestone. Yet, are the characters so absurd? Or can we, much as we want to deny it, see ourselves in them?
Why should people buy tickets to watch your play?
Because it’s funny and fresh and they’ll have a good time. For those who want more than just entertainment, the play also gives an insight into why people do what they do.
Dora Tan

Stand Behind the Yellow Line
Written by Michelle Tan

Stand Behind the Yellow Line is a political satire that portrays what it is to be a Singaporean today. Formally inventive and oddly lyrical play about people who find themselves living outside the lines.
Why should people buy tickets to watch your play?
Because it probably isn’t your typical repertory play; it’s a bit of an experiment in text and lyricism and pushing boundaries. Audiences might find the setting of the play strange and familiar all at once, and so hopefully also find a part of themselves in the story that is being told.
Michelle Tan

*These 2 productions will be staged as a double bill.
