Event description

Description

Meet Elisabeth Gan, a true-blue Peranakan girl, YouTube star, social media influencer and the owner of a glamorous heritage property on Emerald Hill. Elisabeth invites you into her historic mansion for a night of living like a '50s socialite.

@thisisemeraldgirl is an adaptation of Stella Kon's much-loved play Emily of Emerald Hill. The monodrama about a Nonya matriarch was written in 1982 and first performed by Leow Puay Tin in Malaysia in 1984, and Margaret Chan in Singapore in 1985.

Created by Eugene Koh and Lee Shu Yu, and performed by Brenda Tan, @thisisemeraldgirl combines new writing, multimedia, and Stella Kon's original text in a monologue exploring family and social life in a social media age.
