Old Gaze

Updated on: 30 Mar 2023



For Faith (Hossan Leong) and Hope (Kumar), the New Year is just another day. But when an old friend shows up suddenly, their lives are turned upside down. They find themselves embroiled with spies, childhood trauma and GENDER PRONOUNS.

It's been almost 20 years since the gang met up. Will they be able to let go of the ghosts from their past? Will they be able to identify as ELDERLY? What world is this where the GAYBOURS are banging, the Health HOMOTION Board speaks the truth and MINISTRY OF NUCLEAR FAMILIES even exists?

Brash, audacious and just rollicking good fun, Old Gaze is the third and final instalment following The Necessary Stage’s seminal LGBTQ plays Mardi Gras (2003) and Top or Bottom (2004).

Written and directed by Cultural Medallion recipient Haresh Sharma, Old Gaze stars the absolutely fabulous Kumar, Hossan Leong, Rody Vera and Siti Khalijah Zainal, alongside veteran actor Liow Shi Suen and newcomers Azura Farid and Medli Dorothea Loo.
