Dreamplay: Asian Boys Vol. 1 is a campy, fabulous extravaganza charting the journey of a goddess, Agnes, after she descends to earth. Armed with fantastic powers, she is on a heroic mission: ‘to save gay men from themselves’.

And thus Agnes lands in Singapore, where a mysterious guide called ‘Boy’ offers to show her around. They travel through time, meeting with horny, sweaty rickshaw coolies, love-doomed resistance fighters during the Japanese Occupation, and the lonely drifters of a virtual landscape known in the 90’s as the ‘Internet Relay Chat’.

Blending the divinel with the profane, by turns harrowing and hilarious, Dreamplay is a fabulous tour through Singapore’s history, throwing light and fairy dust at the little-known beginnings of an alternative community on the island. Written unapologetically at the tentative turn of the millennium, it has rightly earned its place as one of the pioneering works in Singaporean queer theatre.

In The Spotlight is a season dedicated to a single Singaporean playwright’s work. The aim of this season is to provide audiences with a representative survey of the playwright’s body of work, and more importantly to examine how these works relate to one another and to today’s audiences.

The programme itself will consist of two revivals of the playwright’s work and the premiere of a brand new play. In addition, there will also be dramatised readings and workshops conducted that will explore the styles, themes and inspirations running through the playwright’s works.

This year, W!LD RICE will present three works by their award-winning Resident Playwright, Alfian Sa’at.
