SYNOPSIS

Synopsis

A man stabs an MP at a Meet the People Session. But this is not their story.

It is the story of the man’s girlfriend, an Indonesian maid who wants to get married and become a Singapore citizen. It is the story of the MP’s wife, who tries to cope with her husband’s injury and the media spotlight. It is the story of the maid’s employer, who is also struggling with her own tragedy.

These three women may mean nothing to each other, but they need one another to survive.

The maid, the employer and the MP’s wife. Are they all model citizens?

First staged in 2010 to critical acclaim and subsequently restaged in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur the following year, Model Citizens is a thought-provoking work helmed by director Alvin Tan and playwright Haresh Sharma. This new iteration of Model Citizens will see the return of the original cast—Goh Guat Kian, Karen Tan and Siti Khalijah Zainal—11 years since the production’s premiere.
