Preview: Holier Then How by TheatreWorks (24 Hour Playwriting Competition 2018)
After a fruitful competition held at everyone’s favourite theme park from hell Haw Par Villa last year, TheatreWorks is proud to present Xavier Tay’s Holier Than How, one of the winners of the 2018 24-Hour Playwriting Competition.
Directed by Jeremiah Choy, Holier Then How follows a devout woman struggling with the differences between her two sons – one faithless and one unfaithful. But a hundred days after her husband’s death, things come to a head with her two sons at each other’s throats over what it means to honour their father’s memory.
Starring Catherine Sng, Henry Heng, Nicholas Bloodworth and Rei Poh, Holier Then How runs across various venues in the Southeast for three weeks in March and is completely free (with registration). Come watch the premiere of this new play by a young playwright, and dive into modern, contentious issues of family, faith, and the meaning of nothing.
