From award-winning playwright Thomas Lim (Grandmother Tongue, Supervision) comes Straight Acting, a hopeful, heartfelt comedy about the drama of trying to keep things straight… when you’re anything but.
All Olivia and Jaime want to do is start a family and make a life together – something they can’t easily do in straight-laced Singapore. To make the system work for them, Olivia and Jaime get their gay best friends, Russell and Jia Ming, in on the act. Together, they pretend to be two happy, heteronormative couples living in wedded bliss.
