See Ivan Heng as Emily of Emerald Hill at Wild Rice's new theatre - 11 Sept
Price: S$80 / ticket (Early Bird until Aug 11 ), S$90 / ticket (Standard from Aug 12)

Come and see Ivan (one of Singapore’s most acclaimed actors) reprise his iconic role as Emily - and in Wild Rice's brand new Funan theatre!

Along with Glen Goei, one of Singapore’s most celebrated directors, he brings 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?

Our event will be preceded by a glass of wine at equally brand new Perankan restaurant right next door to the theatre.
