Toy Factory presents Michael Chiang's Army Daze


Army Daze

 2 - 18 Mar 2006

Toy Factory is presenting Michael Chiang's Army Daze at Drama Centre @ New Central Library from 2 - 18 Mar 2006.
Army Daze salutes Singaporean boys as they don uniforms and begin their march into maturity whilst celebrating how the sons of diverse circumstances come under one camp and become brothers; where the boundaries of race, age and social status become blurred.
Michael Chiang's play is about the misadventures of 5 young men going through their Basic Military Training.
The 5 protagonists are: Malcolm Png, the middle-class mummy's boy whose overbearing and highly protective mother just wants him to be a clerk and ¡°not work too hard¡±; Ah Beng, the street-wise hokkien-spewing HDB boy; Krishna, who is always pining for his girlfriend Lathi; the limp-wristed Kenny, who dreams of stardom and wants to join the Music and Drama Company, and Johari, the happy-go-lucky "Rambo".
Screaming superiors and grueling exercises aside, the boys have to deal with their lives outside the microcosm of their platoon, like Krishna¡¯s relationship problems with his flirtatious girlfriend and Kenny¡¯s angst with his family who has abandoned him for Australia.
Under these circumstances, the 5 recruits learn more about each other and themselves whilst having to adjust to army life and their new haircuts with comic results.
