With the welcome arrival of Phase 3 precautions in Singapore, theatre companies are rolling our new schedules now indoor live performances are able to have up to 250 persons in attendance. Social distancing in place , now it's time to support the arts and get back to Theatre.
Enter Pangdemonium. From Thursday Feb 25 to Sunday Mar 14, the theatre company presents Girls & Boys, a one-woman play starring Nikki Muller. This play is a tour de force 90-minute performance of a play that has been described as “very funny” (Broadwayworld.com) on one hand, and “harrowing” (New York Times) and “gut-wrenching” (The Guardian) on the other.
The one-women play performed by Swiss/Filipina, third-culture kid Nikki Muller is written by Dennis Kelly, also known for his musical theatre work on shows such as Matilda and Pinocchio and is directed by Tracie Pang. The play introduces the unnamed protagonist “Woman” who wants to tell you her story.
The "Woman" is strong, confident, funny, yet vulnerable and swears too much. The "Woman" is like every woman, and like no other woman.
She shares her story about her life and her home. The "Woman" recounts a tale of youthful recklessness, lust, passion, and romance. She shares her journey of falling, then finding herself happily married to the man of her dreams, a mother to two beautiful children, a fulfilling and flourishing career, and a future that looks bright as can be. What could possibly go wrong?
All we can say is be prepared for an emotional roller coaster, and expect the unexpected.
