The Housewarming Season of Wild Rice features Supervision, a thrilling, darkly funny and moving production by Thomas Lim. Nominated for six Life! Theatre Awards and Winner of Best Original Script and Best Multimedia, the show sheds light on the rapidly ageing population in our modern world.
71-year-old Teck, a grumpy retiree, suffered a stroke that leaves him wheelchair-bound. When he insists on moving back home, his daughter Jenny hires a young Indonesian domestic worker Yanti to look after him. Yanti initially follows the strict caregiving routine by Jenny but eventually gives in to Teck’s demands when Jenny is not around. But somehow, Jenny always knows exactly what is going on.
