Emily of Emerald Hill
4 September - 22 September
Popular local actor Ivan Heng and well-known Singaporean director Glen Goei bring to life Singapore theatre’s most iconic characters. Set in 1930s Singapore, Emily of Emerald Hill tells the story Emily Gan, an abandoned girl who overcomes all odds to emerge as the matriarch of a distinguished Peranakan household. Step into the theatre and become one of Emily’s guests in her 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?
