WILD RICE @ FUNAN 2020 SEASON - AN ...
In a comfortable middle-class home, a family sits down to a celebratory dinner. But their evening is cut short by the unexpected arrival of an Inspector. He brings news of the tragic death of a young woman. As the Inspector investigates, tensions escalate – threatening to shatter the very foundations on which entire lives and identities are built. What crime has been committed here? Who is guilty? And who isn’t?Written with startling prescience by J.B. Priestley in 1945, An Inspector Calls is more relevant than ever today. A riveting clash of murder and morality, class and conscience, Priestley’s classic play asks its characters – and today’s audiences – to take a good, hard look at the troubling disparities in the world brought about by power, privilege and poverty.Join WILD RICE for this spectacular production of An Inspector Calls, which has been daringly reimagined by director Glen Goei and his top-notch creative team. What more is there to this play’s characters than meets the eye?“Agatha Christie meets The Twilight Zone” - Entertainment Weekly“This play should be compulsory for theatre-lovers” - British Theatre GuideStarring Benjamin Chow, Gavin Yap, Ghafir Akbar, Lim Kay Siu, Serene Cheng & Shu Yi Ching

In a Singapore where dialects have been losing relevance for generations, Grandmother Tongue traces a young man’s struggle to connect with his 84-year-old Teochew-speaking grandmother. He teaches her to use a mobile phone. He helps her buy her favourite brand of soya sauce. He visits her in hospital after a fall. Along the way, he begins to understand just what it means to spend decades in linguistic and cultural exile. Back by popular demand after two sell-out runs, Thomas Lim’s funny, insightful play examines the social costs of our mother-tongue language policy and the erasure of dialects in today’s Singapore. In ways both humorous and heartbreaking, Grandmother Tongue explores how our identities are bound up with the languages that we use and the ones that we lose.“Powerful…Brilliant…Superb!” – The Straits Times“A play which does more showing than telling – but speaks volumes nonetheless." – The Business Times“Boldly done in multiple languages, including dialects, Grandmother Tongue will have a soft spot in our hearts for a long time to come. – PopspokenStarring Jalyn Han, Rei Poh & Tan Shou Chen
WILD RICE @ FUNAN 2020 SEASON - HOT...
A hotel in Singapore is opened at the turn of the century, when the island is still a jewel in the British Empire. Each day, new faces appear and swiftly disappear – guests and staff alike. Every ten years, we check in to meet its residents: Cantonese nannies, Malay film stars, Japanese soldiers, transsexual sex workers, wedding guests, suspected terrorists. They live out the pivotal moments in their personal lives as empires die and new ones are born from their ashes.Even though the chambermaids clean up after them, readying the room for the next guests, traces of the past persist, and time reveals its cyclical nature. Ghosts communicate with the living, doubles are separated by decades, and a single moment of decision haunts the generations that come after.Spanning a century, and performed over five hours in nine languages, HOTEL is a multi-generational epic that explores the notions of nationhood, migration and identity against the backdrop of a shrinking world.“Impressively written and presented, HOTEL does not let up until checkout.” – The Australian“A five-star experience!” – The Straits Times“Exceptionally fearless and outstandingly original, Wild Rice’s Hotel will unquestionably go down in history as a Singapore theatre classic.” – PopspokenStarring Brendon Fernandez, Daniel Jenkins, Dwayne Lau, Ghafir Akbar, Gloria Ang, Ivan Heng, Jo Kukathas, Julie Wee, Lee Chee Keng, Lina Yu, Moo Siew Keh, Pam Oei, Sharda Harrison & Siti Khalijah Zainal
