Open House!

Dear friends and W!LD RICE Angels,

Last week, we threw open the doors of The House Of Bernarda Alba, and welcomed you into the Peranakan mansion we've been lovingly building and furnishing for over a year now. We're thrilled at the warm and wonderful responses we've received from our audiences. It's why we do what we do, and it is our great privilege to have this opportunity to bring Federico Garcia Lorca's world to life for you.

In this issue, we introduce you to three of Bernarda Alba's daughters - Neo Swee Lin plays (almost) 40-year-old virgin Angustias; Glory Ngim challenges the status quo as Adela; and Noorlinah Mohamed plays the martyr as Martirio. We also chat with our award-winning set designer, Wong Chee Wai, about his House without windows, and head backstage with two members of our 27-strong, all-female ensemble. Last but certainly not least, we invite you to ponder Lorca's inspiration and ideas in The House Of Bernarda Alba.

See you at the theatre!

My best,

Up Close and Personal

The (almost) 40-year-old virgin

Neo Swee Lin is no stranger to playing mothers, aunties and grandmothers. She tells us why it's a treat for her to play Angustias, the (almost) 40-year-old virgin in The House Of Bernarda Alba. Read more...

Free spirit

Glory Ngim has come full-circle. She was a member of young & W!LD, our youth training division. Now, she's starring in The House Of Bernarda Alba as the free-spirited Adela. She tells us about working with Glen Goei and her veteran co-stars. Read more...

Playing the martyr

In person, Noorlinah Mohamed is a pint-sized dynamo bursting with energy and passion. She tells us what it's like to rein herself in to play the repressed Martirio in The House Of Bernarda Alba. Read more...

A House without walls

Wong Chee Wai started out in the theatre industry as a graphic designer. Now, he has made a name for himself with his beautifully-designed sets. He takes us into The House Of Bernarda Alba, a Peranakan mansion without walls. Read more...
