The Wild Rice production is based on Henrik Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People, and explores the issues of politics and power. Dr Thomas Chee intends to go public with an exposé on the bacteria-infested water supply in his town, which is marketed as a world-class resort spa, but this decision turns his community against him – including his own brother, the town mayor.
The Studios: fifty
The Esplanade’s special season of The Studios includes 50 of Singapore’s theatre works from the 1960s to the present. Five monumental plays, including Emily of Emerald Hill and Off Centre, are restaged as full productions, while 45 other works are showcased as dramatised readings.
First performed by the Paris Opera Ballet in 1981, this ballet follows the story of the idealistic Don Quixote and his loyal squire. Audiences are invited to journey through his encounters with characters like Basilio and his lover Kitri. Performed in French with English subtitles as part of a series of the Paris Opera Ballet screenings.
The 39 Steps
A humorous mix of Alfred Hitchcock thrill and Monty Python tomfoolery, The 39 Steps is adapted from the novel by John Buchan. Featuring over 100 characters played by four actors, this show follows the adventures of striking hero Richard Hannay – who has been incorrectly accused of murder – and his happenstances with villains, double agents and beautiful women.
Staged by Hatch Theatrics, the play follows Siti, a recent convert to Islam, as she prepares the arrangement for her friend’s funeral, and ends up embarking on a journey of self-discovery. Email email@example.com for tickets.
