Preview: Micromanage. Overwork. Exasperate. By Dark Matter Theatrics
Micromanage. Overwork. Exasperate. (conveniently abbreviated as MOE) is the latest production from Dark Matter Theatrics, comprising playwright-director Christopher Fok, actor Lian Sutton and playwright Marcia Ven Der Straaten (who co-wrote Life! Theatre award winning play Hotel with Alfian Sa’at).
MOE touches on the hot topic of education, which everyone loves commenting on and feel they can do better. Using text and information obtained from interviews with teachers from all walks of life; primary, secondary, retired, neighborhood school and elite independent schools, MOE explores what it’s like to step into the shoes of an educator in Singapore. Over the course of the play, the performers will shed light on the hidden lives of some of our nation’s most unspoken heroes. Whether you absolutely hated your school years or look back on them fondly, with favourite or despised teachers, this play has something for everyone.
MOE plays at Centre 42, 42 Waterloo Street from 27 September-2 October. Tickets are now sold out.
