AWARE is raising funds by having a Gala evening of TOP GIRLS, scheduled for Saturday, 30 May. It will be a great opportunity to put aside more weighty issues and celebrate life and renewal together.
The Caryl Churchill play is among the best 100 plays of the 20th Century on the British National Theatre’s Millennium list. It won the Obie Award in 1983. The Wessex Theatre production is directed by Daniel Toyne, and has a seven member all woman cast playing 16 roles in all! The play has some coarse language but promises an evening of heart-warming truths, and laughter.
A classic of feminist literature, Top Girls opens in a restaurant where Marlene is hosting a dinner party for five friends. The five female guests are all either long-dead or fictional characters from literature or paintings. As the play develops we see other aspects of Marlene’s life; a hard-bitten career woman employed at the 'Top Girls' employment agency, her interactions with colleagues, clients and with the family she left behind. The narrative and themes of this play focus on the various roles of women in society and relationships.
Presented in association with AWARE - Singapore’s leading advocacy group dedicated to promoting gender equality.
It is being staged from 27th May to 30th May. Tickets for the Gala Night on 30th May are at $80 each. This comes with an invite to a reception brought to us by Harry’s and WineGuru. Do support this great cause!

We are a local gay community group where size matters. Our events aim to create a friendly environment where bears, cubs, “G-men” and other stocky and big-sized men – as well as the guys who love them – can hang out, exchange ideas and mingle.
We have shifted to facebook which makes things easier for us logistically. Please look for us at TheBearProject@Facebook
