Singapore's burgeoning playwriting scene is out to prove naysayers who claim our theatre scene has no soul wrong. Enter: The Haque Collective, Singapore's newest crowdfunded theatre troupe, which prides itself in refreshing, original, provocative, and culturally diverse work for both stage and screen.
This September, the collective makes its debut with its first play. The Jugular Vein is an original dark comedy about four women on a bachelorette night who, over the course of the evening, come to realise they don't like each other as much as they thought.
The play is performed by its founding members Stephanie Bovis, Nadia Dayan, Aiswarya Nair, Isabelle Roy, and Jolene Wong – under the art direction of founder Kamil Haque and writer James Thoo. Kamil, the genius behind the collective, also happens to be the only coach in Asia experienced in teaching the Lee Strasberg method of acting, and have coached actors for the stage, major Hollywood films, international, regional and local TV series.
We're not about to spoil it for you, so get your tickets and be prepared to witness a tale of four women, one tragedy, and a whole lot of carnage.
