“This was a rare chance to see older plays such as Lim Chor Pee’s Mimi Fan (performed to agonisingly camp soap opera levels by Kenneth Chia and and Nur Hasyimah bte Hassan) Haresh Sharma’s This Chord (And Others) brought to life, the latter of which was an unexpectedly brilliant appearance from 2BCo co-artistic director Mark Benedict Cheong who should absolutely appear onstage more often… Contemporary plays covered included Faith Ng’s Normal and Joel Tan’s Mosaic, both of which featured actress Shannen Tan whose surprisingly layered performances captured the rough-hewn exterior of her ‘ah lian’ characters, but also possessed a hint of vulnerability and softness lying underneath.” – Bakchormeeboy
