Comrade Mayor - A modern political fairy tale


Comrade Mayor is a tongue-in-cheek, humorous political satire by veteran playwright Russell HENG. The play, a TheatreWorks production, features an all-male cast including Brendon Fernandez, David LEONG, Gani Abdul Karim, Harris Zaidi, Micheas CHAN, Mitchell LEOW and Rodney Oliveiro. It is directed by TAN Boon Hui.

This is what the story is about:

Once upon a time, in an Asian city where people call each other comrades, there lives a powerful maverick Mayor who is hungry for foreign investments. To that city comes an ambitious Singapore ambassador, determined to make her government's stalled industrial park a success.

Then the Mayor sues the Ambassador's brother, a hapless Singapore correspondent, who writes what the whole city only says in whispers:

"The Mayor manipulates the city's courts." Add to that a horny Australian journalist who loves Asian hunks, a dissident seeking refuge in the Singapore embassy and the Mayor's fortune teller, and the supposedly bound-to-win court case for the Mayor becomes an Asian, modern day fairy tale. But will anybody live happily ever after?

(This play contains scenes which may deem objectionable to some members of the audience)
