A bachelorette party is a party that is being held in honour of a woman who is about to get married. Thanks to Hollywood’s depiction, we tend to view such events as an evening of alcohol and to some extent, debauchery. It supposed to be a fun and thrilling night (depending on your definition) and everyone ought to enjoy themselves to the fullest.
But what if, things did not go as planned? Here comes THE JUGULAR VEIN, written by seasoned in-house playwright James Thoo and directed by veteran theatre performer Kamil Haque. The Jugular Vein a one-act play about a group of women on a bachelorette night who, over the course of the evening, come to realise that they don’t all like each other as much as they thought. Tension builds, tempers begin to flare, and before long the entire situation breaks down into all-out anarchy.
This play is presented by The Haque Collective, a crowdfunded theatre troupe which prides itself in providing the opportunities for deserving talented and dedicated performers whose chances are limited due to their background, experience, vague ethnicity or appearance.
While there are a lot of plays or shows produced in Singapore with roles for women, few offer the range of characters or the breadth of definition to allow an actress to do their most interesting work. The Jugular Vein, features four strong female roles (portrayed by Stephanie Bovis, Nadia Dayan, Aiswarya Nair and Jolene Wong) with no male roles. The four characters may all be wives and one of them is a mother, but this is not the thing that defines them as people.
If you are ready to witness drama and splendid acting skills, be sure not to miss this play! GET YOUR TICKETS HERE.
