Hitting (On) Women (R18) - 10 Aug - 19 Aug 2007 3pm & 8pm

Friday, August 10, 2007

ACTION Theatre is proud to present the premiere production of Hitting (On) Women by award-winning playwright Ovidia Yu. Voted Best New Play at Theatre Idols 2007, this hard-hitting, humourous and heartfelt piece will show you a side to women you've never seen before...

The play begins when a woman learns of the death of Karen, an ex-lover she has not seen for twenty years. Trying to decide whether to attend the memorial service, she is "visited" by Karen and they return to the private world they shared to resolve or at least try to understand their love... and the abuse, hurt and healing, loss and renewal of their relationship -- with constant interruptions from a mother who never changes and girlfriends who never stay the same.

Compelling, witty and touching, this play triggers both laughter and tears --sometimes at the same time. It also guarantees you'll never look at panty liners and Tiger Balm lotion the same way again!

Starring Janice Koh (Life! Theatre Award for Best Actress from Proof), Serene Chen (Best Supporting Actress from Asian Boys Vol. 2), Benjamin Ng (Best Supporting Actor from Titoudao), Loretta Chen and Peggy Ferroa. Directed by Samantha Scott-Blackhall and produced by Ekachai Uekrongtham.
