Dirty, subversive and on the curriculum

26Jun12

Porn star Lee Kuan Yew — not coming soon to Singapore.  The Age:

SEX.violence.blood.gore, a play with themes of repression and sexual transgression, is about to get its third international production in Melbourne, after seasons in Stockholm and Copenhagen.

Its characters include lesbians, transsexuals, a nymphomaniac and a combination of porn star and Lee Kuan Yew, Singapore’s former prime minister.

”You can guess from the title that it is about all those things that have been repressed coming back with a vengeance,” says playwright Alfian bin Sa’at on the phone from Singapore.

”When it was first staged, we had to get a permit from the police and they asked us to cut three scenes. That means it has only been performed unabridged outside of Singapore.”
