In The Company Of Women

 

Family. Relationships. Love, food and babies. The things closest to the hearts of women - and men - all over the world.

This first collection of ten plays, monologues and a film script from actor/director/playwright Verena Tay, deftly written from the perspective of a distinctly Singaporean woman, plunges us deep into the intricate female psyche. Firmly rooted in both the heartlands and urban space of Singapore, these works are steeped in the island's unique flavour of modern sophistication and tradition, multi-culturalism and ethnicity, past and present. They come straight from the heart, exposing issues both serious and frivolous: sex, bonds, stress, the search for identity and the perfect shoe.

Few writers can match the precision and sensitivity with which Verena reflects the female condition - her characters' crisp, colloquial language belies her grasp of what a woman is.

Incisive without being judgement, passionate without being feminist: the simple charm of Verena's writing increases with each reading.
