Following its world premiere at the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2013, The Necessary Stage’s ‘Best Of’ has gone on to receive rave reviews at last June’s Georgetown Festival as part of the Causeway EXchange initiative. This month, the Singaporean theatre company’s critically acclaimed one-woman play will make its way to KLPac for a hotly tipped KL debut.
Penned by celebrated Singaporean playwright Haresh Sharma of ‘Off Centre’ fame, ‘Best Of’ sees award-winning thespian Siti Khalijah Zainal delivering a deeply arresting and engaging performance about the life of a young modern Malay woman residing in Singapore. Delicate issues of race, religion and family are woven through moving and candid personal reflections from Siti Khalijah’s recently divorced character, who encounters prejudice and memorable strangers over the course of the hour-long production.
