Shakespeare’s Globe returns to Singapore with three of the playwright’s most popular plays - Twelfth Night, The Merchant of Venice and The Taming of the Shrew.How did a company tour in Shakespeare’s day? We know that when the theatres closed, a small group of actors, juggling a variety of roles in three or four plays from their extensive repertoire, would leave London and head off on tour. We also know that the choice of play or entertainment was left to the most powerful person of the household.Cast your vote!So, following in the tradition of our resident playwright, a company of eight actors will offer audiences a choice of three plays. And also in keeping with tradition – and with thrilling unpredictability – the choice of play will be put back into the hands of the most powerful members of the house: the audience.Follow in the tradition of a Shakespearean audience and get involved, raise your hands and shout out loud to cast your vote for your favourite play!Join us this September to watch one of the three plays on a specific date, or attend one of the Audience Choice shows, where you – the audience- will choose the play just before the performance is set to begin.The Merchant of Venice - In Venice, the epicentre of consumption, speculation and debt, Bassanio borrows money from his friend Antonio to finance his attempt to win the hand of Portia, a wealthy heiress.Twelfth Night - In the household of the Countess Olivia, two campaigns are being quietly waged - one by the lovesick Duke Orsino against the heart of the indifferent Olivia; the other by an alliance of servants and hangers-on against the high-handedness of her steward, the pompous Malvolio.The Taming of the Shrew - Two wealthy sisters in Padua must be married off. The modest, demure Bianca has no shortage of suitors, but who on earth will take the wild, ungovernable, ‘shrewish’ Kate?

THE REUNIFICATION OF THE TWO KOREAS...
The Reunification Of The Two Koreas by Joël Pommerat is a patchwork of twenty short scenes revolving around an unuttered question: what are human relationships made of?A woman wants a divorce because there was never any love between her and her husband, on her wedding day a bride discovers her fiancé had an affair with each of her four sisters, a mother is stunned when she learns her husband is happy with their son joining the army and risking his life at war, two best friends get into a savage fight because one of them recalls their first encounter, a prostitute bargains down her services to hook a client- What are those bonds that lead us to love, hate, help, betray, care, flee, fight, abuse or lie? Each scene explores situations where a relationship is challenged, drawing us into a maze where appeased relations between humans seem as primal, desirable and quixotic as the reunification of the two Koreas.The Reunification Of The Two Koreas is a co-production between TheatreWorks and Centre Dramatique National de Tours (CDNT). It is directed by Jacques Vincey, Artistic Director of CDNT, translated into English by Marc Goldberg, and performed by Cynthia Lee Macquarrie, Ebi Shankara, Karen Tan, Janice Koh, Pavan J Singh, Tan Shou Chen, Timothy Nga, Umi Kalthum Ismail and Zelda Tatiana Ng.---TheatreWorks presents its 2018 Season, BECAUSE I LOVE YOU, with two plays – 13.13.13 by Shen Tan and The Reunification Of The Two Koreas by Joël Pommerat.

Tiger of Malaya
Written by: Alfian Sa'atDirected by: Mohd Fared JainalDramaturgy by: Shawn ChuaPerformed by: Farez Najid, Siti Khalijah Zainal, Rei Poh, Rei Kitagawa, Yuya TanakaIn 1943, the Japanese film 'The Tiger of Malaya' was released. Based on the life story of Tani Yutaka, a Japanese man who lived on the east coast of Malaya, the film portrayed him as a patriotic agent who liberated the Malay natives from British imperialists and Chinese capitalists.Now, more than 70 years later, a group of actors are going to reenact scenes from the film. Real Malay actors will replace the 'brown face' Japanese actors in the original. Chinese actors will play antagonists who are 'less evil'. A Japanese actor will try to find a space of performance between the wartime propaganda classifications of heroes, villains and victims.As they comically attempt to 'correct' history, they discover how their identities are sustained not by the accuracies of history but the stubbornness of myths.
Waiting for Godot
A tragicomedy in two parts, Waiting For Godot follows two days in the lives of wandering vagabonds Vladimir and his friend Estragon on a barren country road as they wait expectantly by a lone tree in hope for salvation from a man called Godot. A man they hope will give them answers to their undefined questions. While waiting, they fool around, entertaining one another with feisty debate and comedic Vaudevillian tricks.Instead of Godot they meet two eccentric travellers, the overbearing landowner Pozzo, and his tormented servant Lucky and a young boy who advises them that ‘Mr Godot won’t come here today but he’ll surely arrive tomorrow’. When tomorrow comes, still determining to leave, the pair remain and wait, they wait for Godot.Few plays have attracted so much interpretation. Much attention has been centred on the character of the cryptic Godot. But perhaps the real subject of this extraordinary text is not Godot, but waiting.This production from Ireland’s AC Productions has thrilled and entertained audiences since 2005.
李尔亡 Lear Is Dead

The Fools Society presents Lear Is Dead — a performance that tells the story of Lear:The ageing Lear had given his land to his two elder daughters, and disowned the truthful youngest daughter.

Finally, Lear was driven out of the house and into the night storm, to wander like a madman on a heath.When power is gained, wisdom is lost. When history is learnt, the present becomes clear. Why should the jesters replay their national memory, and how will the citizens move on without Lear?Based on Shakespeare’s King Lear, Nine Years Theatre presents a re-imagined reality through the play-within-a-play, Lear Is Dead.To know more about the production, please visit http://www.nineyearstheatre.com/current_en.html
