For fans of local stories, Gopal Baratham, Colin Cheong, Philip Jeyaretnam and Simon Tay should be familiar names. For those who aren’t well acquainted with Singaporean literature, they’re well known for their stories from the 1990s.
The Page On Stage, a production at The Arts House from 9 to 11 March 2018 will see these stories brought to life.
It’s directed by Brendon Fernandez, the same person behind the recurring series of “The Importance of Being Earnest” plays. If you need any reassurance that the play’s going to be good, that’s it.
Rebekah Sangeetha Dorai and Jun Vinh Teo will be taking on the task of portraying these sophisticated characters on stage, to bring to you the most accurate renditions of the words written. Their performance seeks to invoke feelings of longing and nostalgia as they tell tales of growing old and falling in love.
The play is also produced by Tan Kheng Hua, an actress best known for her role in Phua Chu Kang, and her serious love for the arts.
So if you’re just as passionate as she is about storytelling, or want to see Singaporean literature come to life, get a ticket to The Page On Stage instead of the cinema!
