The Magic Fundoshi

Until I watched the award-winning play on its opening night at the National Library theatre, I didn’t know that a fundoshi was a loincloth.
Glenn Goei made an opening speech, warning those whose sensitivities might be offended by the bawdy humour, that a red light above the stage would turn on as a warning, and they should close their eyes.  The Geylang-esque red light turned on halfway through the first story and remained there until the end.
Rest assured there was no frontal nudity – let’s just say they just had a lot of, er, cheek. When Emma Yong (one of my favourite local actresses) made her sudden appearance, I actually saw … stars.
Kudos to the drummer, and to all the actors for a brave performance.
