A new play by Tan Tarn How
Directed by Jeramiah Choy
13 - 31 March 2002, The Black Box, Fort Canning Park.
A strange tale of two men Rex and Heng who one day turn up at the home of listless friends Lina and Kim. The men claim to be appliance repairmen, though they don't always behave like the real thing, and proceed to fix their washing machine. Half encouraged by the girls, half imposing their own way, Rex and Heng stay on for longer than seemed necessary to change the tumbler motor.
Love-sex-romance happens, need-want-desire is pursued. But in these times can satisfaction be met, much less guaranteed? A chillingly unsentimental exploration of the foursome's strange, out-of-this-world relationships that give no allowances to the pieties of life.
Karen Tan, Casey Lim, Janice Koh and Low Kee Hong.
