Wild Rice @ Funan

Moments before they make their entrance into our world, Boy and Girl are each assigned scripts by a Playwright. As they rehearse for the lives that they will lead, they begin questioning the roles that they have been given.

Why are women and men expected to behave in certain ways? How did the world come to be such an unequal place for women and men? Can there be a different way of raising future generations?

In this challenging and insightful original comedy by Thomas Lim, one of Singapore theatre’s most exciting playwrights, Wild Rice invites young people to participate in the shared experience of theatre – to engage with a play’s themes and think about how the issues raised relate to everyday life and the world we live in. Learning outside the classroom has never been this inspiring and fun!

Duration: approximately 60 minutes (with 20 minutes post-show talk)
