Kwa Geok Choo – Singapore and the story of Mrs Lee Kuan Yew

As theatres welcome back audiences to experience life unfold on stage, Toy Factory Productions is thrilled to present Kwa Geok Choo, a tribute to the remarkable woman whose actions and influence were responsible for directing the waves, currents and tides that shape lives in Singapore.

Written by Ovidia Yu, one of Singapore’s most well-known writers and directed by Toy Factory Productions’ Chief Artistic Director Goh Boon Teck, this moving theatrical piece will engage the audience in a memorable and meaningful performance. It will be enhanced by the use of creative lighting and image projection to fully immerse the audience into her extraordinary life.

This first-time collaboration between writer and theatre company marks a momentous return to the stage after two years of restrictions, presenting a riveting, inspiring and above all, significant play to unite and educate the audience.

Taking on the pivotal role is rising talent Tan Rui Shan, 30 who is a multi-faceted bilingual Singaporean actress and choreographer. She shares: “I am honoured to be given this opportunity to portray such an iconic and prominent Singaporean public figure. It is my goal to tell her story as a woman, wife and mother, as truthfully as I can.”

This performance will celebrate Kwa Geok Choo as an inspiring pioneer, her resilient life story throughout the nation’s hardships and victories, and hopefully inspire the younger generation with a faithful retelling that showcases a multi-faceted leader and phenomenal woman.
