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.
This new production evokes the golden age of Straits-Chinese culture from the 1930s, a decadent world where fulfilment for a woman can only be found in her roles as a daughter-in-law, wife, mother and home-maker. What must Emily do to succeed, and at what cost? Is she a woman trapped by tradition, or a feminist ahead of her time?
