Following what has been an extended period of muted expressions and restricted interaction, theatre darling Wild Rice is finally reopening its Ngee Ann Kongsi Theatre at Funan with Faghag, a vibrant musical back by popular demand. Directed by Ivan Heng and written and performed by local actress Pam Oei, Faghag runs from Jul 1-25.
This acclaimed cabaret spearheads the return of theatre with its exuberance and attitude—so be prepared to enjoy this flamboyant comedy that touches on important issues too.
A longtime ally of the LGBTQ+ community, Oei’s performance sheds light on the stories, struggles, and typical lives of what it means to be gay. Through Faghag’s multiple characters, Oei will sing her way into our hearts.
Taking place as Pride Month comes to a close, this rainbow of a spectacle is a timely display of relevant messages and often overlooked difficulties faced by community members, as seen at the core of every Pride celebration.
In line with current public health advisories, audience members will have to undergo Pre-Event Testing (PET) for Covid-19 and return a negative result before being allowed entry. Individuals who have been fully vaccinated or have recovered from a Covid-19 infection will be exempt from PET.
To encourage local theatre’s rebound while welcoming back theatre enthusiasts, Wild Rice will be covering all PET costs for Faghag. Tests will be provided free of charge and administered by a team of trained medical staff, who will be stationed at Funan from two hours before each performance. The company is accepting support and contribution towards their PET costs through the newly established Wild PET Kitty. Find out more about Wild Rice and the show here.
