Gemuk Girls by The Necessary Stage

如果你没有看过必要剧场的作品,尤其是黄金搭档 Haresh Sharma 与 Alvin Tan, 那你没有看过新加坡最好的剧场。他们请我去看 preview, 可惜刚好有公务在身,无法出席。据看过的朋友说起,都是强力推荐的呢。

The Necessary Stage celebrates the award-winning collaboration of Director Alvin Tan and Playwright Haresh Sharma with a provocative new work.

Kartini and Juliana are not your typical mother-daughter pair - one loud and overbearing, the other straitlaced and on the threshold of entering politics. Together, they are Gemuk Girls and proud of it.

One day, they receive shocking news about Kartini’s father who had been arrested and detained in the 1960s. Suddenly the floodgates of the family’s emotional past are thrown open. Can a family survive as they struggle to reconcile the past with the present? Will Kartini and Juliana continue to be Gemuk Girls?

Gemuk Girls is a bold and often darkly humorous look at family politics and the politics of the day.
