Get your Pride Flags out! Mardi Gras is back!
After a successful sold-out run last year during Singapore's PINK month - August! - this sexycrazycool play is back to make you laugh, cry and gasp!
A group of people come together to organise Singapore's first Pride Parade. They plan to hold the March at the Padang, with dykes on bikes, fags and fag hags, leathers and feathers; they want to shout out loud and be proud.
As they plan, the tension mounts; the cracks in their relationships surface. Jokes turn to bitchiness, which turn to clawing. Are they going to prove themselves to be ONE PEOPLE, ONE NATION, ONE SIN-GAY-PORE...
Or will the rainbow colours represent segregation and prejudice?
Top Or Bottom
Starring Paerin Choa, Natalie Hennedige, Kumar, Hossan Leong, Rody Vera
Mourning is such hard work. You want to cry but you don't want to be unglam. And what do you wear to your friend's wake if you have to go to a club after that?
The death of someone special causes a group of friends to re-examine their lives and their feelings about death. Fundamental questions are asked: Will I go to hell if I'm a bitch? Am I spending too much time at the Gym? Can I be gay and married?
The group of friends soon make important realisations:
That you can be married and gay
That you can be friends and use each other
That you can be top and bottom
If you ask nicely, will your friend's corpse come back to life?
