Wife 11

by Desmond Sim

26-28 Feb 2016, The Arts House

A play by Desmond Sim (Autumn Tomyam, The Swimming Instructor) about a towkay and his newest wife in post-war Singapore as they jostle to negotiate their way through a tumultuous relationship on the eve of the country's transformation into a modern nation that will no longer tolerate polygamy.

Amy Cheng joins forces with Sonny Lim in this engaging and touching play. First staged at the National Museum of Singapore with Tan Kheng Hua and Casey Lim in February 2009.

A gem...beautiful in its subtlety..

Very moving. The story blurs the lines between positive and negative, proper and improper, progressive and retrograde. As we got to know the characters, we could get a peek into the existential dilemmas which each one of us faces...

About the Charity

Inspired by working with one of the pioneering figures of Singapore theatre in the 1980s, the late William Teo, a group of his key performers founded World-In-Theatre in 2002. Their commitment to giving Singaporeans an opportunity to see the great traditional and modern classics of world theatre is deserving of support. Without such opportunities, there is no way to impart knowledge to the younger generation about the great plays of the world in an era when commercial considerations hold much greater sway. The arts have a significant role in Singapore, especially as the nation continues to stake its claim as a world city and cultural hub, and World-in-Theatre aims to contribute to Singapore as it has been doing for the past 12 years.
