Based on the true story of Singaporean Wayang (Chinese Street Opera) star Madam Oon Ah Chiam, Titoudao portrays the struggles of this petite lady with big dreams, fighting against despairing personal states of poverty, gender inequality and shadowed marital vexations.

Above all, she takes these multiple hardships and challenges in life by the horns in order to realize her dreams and find her place in the world. This epic biography also parallels pivotal events in Singapore’s history to showcase how our lives have been transformed over the course of over 5 decades.

“Titoudao arrived on stage at a time where Singapore theatre was hitting its stride, but has continued to beat the same drum long after, echoing the need to preserve our intangible heritage, to elevate our fading past.” - The Straits Times

“I lost my wayang virginity to Titoudao and had absolutely no regrets. We may not see much wayang these days, but this play may just be that magical bridge that links us to Singapore’s vanishing treasures.” - TODAY Singapore

“An Iconic Singaporean Theatrical Masterpiece” - Eksentrika

“Titoudao connects with the young and old - it is a timeless piece of theatre. ” - Centre42

“The play feels like an intimate behind-the-scenes look at a wayang actress’ life. Older audience members would leave the play reminiscing about the good old times. As for me, I left the play seeing wayang in a new light, with newfound respect for the craft.” - TheSmartLocal
