The Necessary Stage (TNS) celebrates the award-winning collaboration between director Alvin Tan and playwright Haresh Sharma with a provocative new work which premiered to FULL HOUSES in Singapore.
TNS & KLPac will be bringing Gemuk Girls to KL and will be staged at KLPac from 4 to 7 December.
Kartini and Juliana are not your typical mother-daughter pair - one loud and overbearing, the other straitlaced and on the threshold of entering politics. Together, they are Gemuk Girls and proud of it.
One day, they receive shocking news about Kartini's father who had been arrested and detained in the 1960s. Suddenly, the floodgates of the family's emotional past are thrown open. Can a family survive as they struggle to reconcile the past with the present? Will Kartini and Juliana continue to be Gemuk Girls?
Gemuk Girls is a bold and often darkly humorous look at family politics and the politics of the day.
