At this time, when we’re all staying safe by staying home, let us entertain you! From 1 May (7.30pm SGT) to 8 May (3pm SGT), WILD RICE is proud to present Thomas Lim’s heartbreakingly insightful Supervision in the comfort of your living room.
71-year-old Teck, a grumpy retiree, has just suffered a stroke that leaves him wheelchair-bound. When he insists on moving back home, Jenny, his no-nonsense daughter, hires a young Indonesian domestic worker, Yanti, to look after him.
At first, Yanti dutifully follows the strict caregiving regime drawn up by Jenny. But Teck refuses to give up a few of his favourite vices. When Jenny is not around, Yanti gives in to Teck’s demands for fatty, braised pork belly and the occasional cigarette. And yet, somehow, Jenny always knows exactly what is going on…
Thrilling, darkly funny and profoundly moving, Thomas Lim’s Supervision examines the complicated dynamics of love, family and privacy in a Singapore where foreign workers have become our primary care-givers.
