Emily of Emerald Hill
Ivan Heng is one of Singapore’s most acclaimed actors. Glen Goei is one of Singapore’s most celebrated directors. Together, they bring to life one of Singapore theatre’s most iconic characters: Emily Gan, an abandoned girl who overcomes all odds to emerge as the matriarch of a distinguished Peranakan household.
Evoking the golden age of Straits-Chinese culture from the 1930s, this new production promises to be the most immersive version of Stella Kon’s enduring classic yet. Step into our theatre and become one of Emily’s guests in her opulent, meticulously kept mansion...
In this decadent world, fulfilment for a woman can only be found in her roles as a daughter-in-law, wife, mother and home-maker. So what must she do to succeed? And at what cost? Is Emily a woman trapped by tradition, or a feminist ahead of her time?
In 2000, Ivan Heng founded WILD RICE with an electrifying production of this landmark play, in which he first made Emily Gan his own. We can think of nothing more appropriate to commemorate WILD RICE’s new home.
“A moving, funny and accomplished piece of theatre.” - The Age, Melbourne
“This was a funny, camp, and touching performance, quite deserving of its full house.” - South China Morning Post, Hong Kong
“When Glen Goei and Ivan Heng come together in the name of Art, any play can be expected to deliver wit and sensitivity.” - 8 DAYS, Singapore
