Emily of Emerald Hill
4 September - 28 September
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?
