A Wedding, A Funeral and Lucky, the Fish (Written by Dora Tan)

Dramaturged by Jack Bradley from The National Theatre and mentored by David Henry Hwang, Dora explores the nature of marriage and its relevance to Singapore's rapidly modernizing society. Do we still look to marriage as a kind of emotional and financial stability in a society where change is the norm?

A Wedding, A Funeral & Lucky, the Fish goes to extremes to show how marriage for Singaporean women might still very much be a milestone. Yet, are the characters so absurd? Or can we, much as we want to deny it, see ourselves in them?

When Seraphina brings Alistair, her ang moh boyfriend, to Singapore, he thinks they're just having a cup of tea. Little does he know that he will be participating in his own wedding tea ceremony! But when the couple arrives, Sera makes a discovery so shocking its revelation would certainly stop the wedding! One by one, Xin Ru her sister, Alistair and Ma make the same discovery and for their own reasons, no one reveals. Absurd, funny and poignant, A Wedding, A Funeral & Lucky, the Fish will surely make you laugh because the alternative is a truth too bitter to swallow.

Starring Amy Cheng, Isabella Chiam, Daniel Jenkins and Catherine Sng.

Stand Behind the Yellow Line (Written by Michelle Tan)

After its journey through SRT's Writers' Week workshop (2011) facilitated by David Henry Hwang, Stand Behind the Yellow Line received its first public stage reading in 2012. Audience members called the play "incisive, unexpectedly vulnerable, and a nuanced, humane portrait of what it is to be Singaporean today."

Awaiting her son's release from jail, a single, homeless mother finds an unlikely friend in the young, well–off but clinically depressed Mo. Set in an unidentified yet vaguely familiar locality, a place where rules are rules are rules are not made to be broken, Stand Behind the Yellow Line is a formally inventive and oddly lyrical play about the people who find themselves living outside the lines.

Starring R. Chandran, Zelda Ong, Isaac Ong and Jean Toh.
