WILD RICE @ FUNAN GRAND OPENING SEA...
Emily of Emerald HillIvan Heng is one of Singapore’s most acclaimed actors. Glen Goei is one of Singapore’s most celebrated directors. Together, they bring to life one of Singapore theatre’s most iconic characters: Emily Gan, an abandoned girl who overcomes all odds to emerge as the matriarch of a distinguished Peranakan household.Evoking the golden age of Straits-Chinese culture from the 1930s, this new production promises to be the most immersive version of Stella Kon’s enduring classic yet. Step into our theatre and become one of Emily’s guests in her opulent, meticulously kept mansion...In this decadent world, fulfilment for a woman can only be found in her roles as a daughter-in-law, wife, mother and home-maker. So what must she do to succeed? And at what cost? Is Emily a woman trapped by tradition, or a feminist ahead of her time?In 2000, Ivan Heng founded WILD RICE with an electrifying production of this landmark play, in which he first made Emily Gan his own. We can think of nothing more appropriate to commemorate WILD RICE’s new home.“A moving, funny and accomplished piece of theatre.” - The Age, Melbourne“This was a funny, camp, and touching performance, quite deserving of its full house.” - South China Morning Post, Hong Kong“When Glen Goei and Ivan Heng come together in the name of Art, any play can be expected to deliver wit and sensitivity.” - 8 DAYS, Singapore

MerdekaAs the Singapore Bicentennial is celebrated, six young people form a group called Raffles Must Fall to examine our country's colonial legacy. During their gatherings, they pore over forgotten texts and artefacts, re-enacting scenes from the past to better understand the nightmare of subjugation... and the dream of self-determination.Drawing upon a wealth of historical documentation, including speeches, newspaper articles, petitions and songs, "Merdeka / 獨立 /சுதந்திரம்" confronts us with questions about our colonial past and how it still echoes through our present and into our future.Why celebrate the beginning of colonialism rather than its end? Has Singapore gained independence without truly undergoing a process of decolonisation? And if Raffles must fall, what will he take down with him?Written by the award-winning Alfian Sa'at in collaboration with up-and-coming playwright Neo Hai Bin, this provocative and moving new play examines how our history and humanity have been shaped – and shattered – by the forces of colonialism.

Shakespeare's Globe 2019
Shakespeare’s Globe presents a trio of plays exploring the themes of refuge and displacement, The Comedy of Errors, Pericles and Twelfth Night. Taking on multiple roles across all three plays, the company will unravel these timeless tales of those who have crossed seas, lost their families, and are finding out what belonging truly means to them.PERICLES - The spirit of fairy tale is never far from the surface of Pericles, the first of Shakespeare’s late romances. Imbued with music, miracles, and the constant presence of the sea, this little-seen work sees Pericles, Prince of Tyre, forced to flee his own kingdom and wander the world.THE COMEDY OF ERRORS - Take one pair of estranged twin brothers (both named Antipholus), and one pair of estranged twin servants (both named Dromio) – both pairs separated at sea. Add a dash of mistaken identity and throw them into a city with a reputation for sorcery, and you have all the ingredients for theatrical chaos…TWELFTH NIGHT - When a shipwreck tears a family apart, twins Sebastian and Viola seek refuge in a new land. Filled with unforgettable characters, Twelfth Night combines cruelty with high comedy and the pangs of unrequited love with subtle poetry, expressed through some of Shakespeare’s most exquisite songs.AUDIENCE CHOICEWhat’s it like to go to the theatre and not know what you’re going to see? Take part in our democratic theatrical experiment to find out. For one performance only, it will be up to you to vote for which of these three plays you want to see: Pericles, Twelfth Night or The Comedy of Errors.The rules are simple: the loudest cheer wins. Actors call it ‘terrifying’, audiences say it’s exhilarating. So scream and shout as loud as you can for the play you want to see, and blow the (figurative) roof off the theatre.
