11 years after its debut, Model Citizens will return to The Necessary Stage’s (TNS) Black Box from 24 March to 4 April 2021! The restaging of Haresh Sharma’s multi-faceted play marks the last show slated to happen at TNS’ home before the company moves out in August.
The production follows the unexpected meeting of and relationships between three women—the wife of a Member of Parliament, a domestic helper, and her employer—following a stabbing that occurred at a Meet-the-People session. The work delves into a slew of socio-cultural issues, including the disparities between social classes, gender roles, coping with loss and more.
While the upcoming work will take its cues from Sharma’s original script, audience members can expect to experience a revamped aesthetic created by brand-new design team. The work will also see original cast members—Goh Guat Kian, Siti Khalijah Zainal and Karen Tan — reprising their roles as Mrs Chua, Melly and Wendy respectively.
Dates: Wednesday to Saturday, 8pm
Saturday & Sunday, 3pm
Venue: The Necessary Stage Black Box
When: 24 Mar - 4 Apr 2021,
Venue/Organizer: The Necessary Stage
