Preview: Two great shows to catch this November!
Got your head spinning deciding what shows to catch this school holiday? SRT is here to offer up two tantalising shows this November!
Firstly, there’s the Singaporean premiere of Pulitzer-Prize winning play Disgraced, which has also become the most staged play in the US in 2016! Disgraced follows Amir, an American born Muslim who’s achieved the American Dream with a great job and beautiful artist wife (who happens to specialise in Islam-inspired art). At a celebratory dinner however, things start to unravel when he’s involved in a controversial case of faith and forced to ask himself the question: has he removed himself too far from his roots? This production of Disgraced will be directed by Nate Silver, who has directed previous runs of the play on Broadway. It’s a briskly paced one act play and isn’t afraid to raise difficult questions about religion in this trigger warning happy world, so prepare yourselves for one drama-filled ride.
For the younger ones, SRT’s The Little Company will be presenting the classic children’s novel Charlotte’s Web. Named “the best American children’s book of the past two hundred years” by the Children’s Literature Association, this adaptation of Charlotte’s Web was created by Joseph Robinette, with the advice of original author E.B. White. Kids are sure to be glued to their seats in this riveting tale of a pig who befriends Charlotte, a spider who spins messages with her webs to save him from being sent to the butcher. You’ll think twice about having that bacon for breakfast after catching this!
Between Disgraced and Charlotte’s Web, SRT has something for everyone this November and December! See you there, and stay tuned for our reviews.
Disgraced plays from 16 November – 4 December at the KC Arts Centre, tickets available from SISTIC. Charlotte’s Web plays 28 October-11 December, also at the KC Arts Centre, tickets available from SISTIC.
