Ménage à trois?

 

No thanks, it’s rather passé and unexciting really, with only just three...

 

The Theatre Practice is proud to present its Lunar New Year production and invite you to a Ménage à 13!

 

Did you say 13? Relax... it’s really not that kinky. Just 4 people in 13 positions.

 

Sounds complicated? You bet.

 

Loud and brassy politician Cai Liu Mu is having a scandalous affair with the delectable Miss Ye, behind the back of his wife, celebrity talkshow host Hua Jie, who noses endlessly into other people’s lives. And let’s not forget their darling daughter Angie, the dreamy teenager who believes that everything can be solved by L-O-V-E.

 

In an all too familiar scenario of freakish family ties and extramarital entanglement, are we all simply looking to love and be loved?

 

Follow the laughter and tears of these vagrant souls as they navigate this quagmire of entanglements in their singular search for love.

 

Ménage à 13 is written by acclaimed playwright Stan Lai (Performance Workshop, Taiwan), and will be directed by Wu Xi (Co Artistic Director, TTP).

The most important aspect of an arts education for a child is its integration within culture itself. Culture sets forth the foundation on which a country is built upon: its direction, pathways and values. The education of arts and culture very much emphasizes the development of character.
