  • Anatomy of a Hug
    5 Apr. 2018
    This play stays with you, even years after you've read, seen, or heard it. The characters are so raw, lovable, and real. This story of a mother and daughter is not to be forgotten.
  • Family Dinner
    5 Apr. 2018
    This play is FUNNY. Laugh out loud funny. It is weird and intelligent and dark and wildly unique.
  • The Jackets
    5 Apr. 2018
    A universal yet distinctly Singaporean exploration of loss in a contemporary, state-controlled society, this moving docudrama successfully fuses the micro and the macro, the historical and the fictional.
  • The Blesser of Utensils
    5 Apr. 2018
    This hilarious and unique one-man show features a "kitchen god" in his domain: the kitchen. Food, a symbol of that most vital to us: life, satiation, hunger, longing, loss. The piece begs an immersive, live-cooking experience! A highlight from the text: "(Note: Audience members are invited to try the dish cooked after the show. Don't waste food)"
  • Strange Fruit
    5 Apr. 2018
    This powerful short play calls for masks, trained movement, and an experienced director. Like much of Mr. Fok's work, the piece (happily, joyously) asks a great deal of it's artists and, too, of it's audience. The play blends traditional movement style with contemporary dialogue and pop culture references. An audience will long remember this piece after the curtain falls.
  • A Twisted Kingdom
    5 Apr. 2018
    This is an incredibly important play and an actor's dream role. Using elements of the surreal, of tarot, of magic, this story explores childhood trauma in a refreshingly unique way. There is simply not another play like this one. I highly recommend this heavy, moving, and powerful work of art.
