Readings of excerpts of works-in-development by Charles O’Grady, Emily Sheehan and Merlynn Tong.
The O'Gradys by Charles O'Grady
A very modern comedy. In order to fulfil a range of institutional requirements, a trans man must pretend to be his own wife.
Monument by Emily Sheehan
A wishful dramedy. A young female MP steps up to become PM.
God of Gold by Merlynn Tong
A surprising comedy. The story of an orphaned young woman whose favourite guardian — that is kindest, and most fun — turns out to be the mastermind of Singapore’s biggest Ponzi scheme.
