From 3 to 20 July 2013, Singapore-based theatre group Wild Rice is staging a festival of works by bad-ass playwright and political commentator Alfian Sa’at, with a particular focus on his landmark gay play Dreamplay: Asian Boys Vol. I.
From 10 April to 4 May, Singaporean theatre company Wild Rice is restaging their all-male version of The Importance of Being Earnest, a sparkling comedy by 19th century gay icon Oscar Wilde. We talk to director Glen Goei and 'leading lady' Ivan Heng – both of them local gay icons themselves.
Inspired by the '70s hit Hong Kong girl band duo Chopsticks Sisters, Perry Chiu Experimental Theatre presents Chopsticks, the first lesbian-themed musical in Hong Kong. Fridae's reporter Tony Ed Lo talks to the show's producer, director and one of its leads, Perry Chiu about how the sisters' relationship evolves from friendship to love via music.
An upcoming play by beloved Singapore songwriter Dick Lee exposes the seamy world of male beauty pageants. Fridae chats with the hunky actors playing the contestants: Eli Tee, Kaeng Chan and Rodney Oliveiro.
