Wills and Secession
Singapore Playhouse London is back this year with "Wills and Secession", the second instalment of the “Invitation to Treat” trilogy by Singaporean playwright Eleanor Wong. A story about identity, faith, sexuality, love, and family, the play revolves around Ellen Toh, a lesbian lawyer; her partner Lesley; and Ellen’s conservative Christian sister, Grace. Tensions rise when Grace has to persuade Ellen (and by extension, Lesley) into returning to Singapore to take care of their ailing father after their mother passes away. Lesley herself is dying of cancer, and as she approaches her final days, the three women bond in their struggle to reconcile personal inclinations, familial obligations, and society’s expectations.
