Best Of
The Necessary Stage (SINGAPORE)

Award-winning actress Siti Khalijah Zainal takes centre-stage in this one-woman show specially created for her by The Necessary Stage’s playwright Haresh Sharma and director Alvin Tan, two of Singapore’s finest theatre practitioners.

She is a young Malay-Muslim woman going through a divorce.
She starts her day at the prison.
She ends her day at the hospital.
In between, she meets strangers,
she encounters prejudice.

Sometimes she hates what she sees around her, sometimes she is moved.
She shares her day with the audience;
her life, her past, her dreams…
and her fears.

She is not a stereotype.
She is not a statistic.
She just wants to get on with her life.

First performed in 2013 and staged four times in Singapore and Malaysia to popular and critical acclaim, Best Of combines social critique with intimate revelation and offers an enthralling insight into modern Singapore.

“Siti exudes a confidence that has the entire audience eating out of her hand.” (The Straits Times)
