Written while waiting for the book ordered from the authorI was set to dislike Emily of Emerald Hill when I saw it at the 2002 Melbourne Festival Man dresses up as woman puts on high voice yawn Yawwnnnnnnn But Ivan Heng had everybody me included in his thrall from the moment he opened his mouth His performance as Emily was stunning His use of and interaction with the audience was remarkable Not for one second did he let up even coming into the foyer during the interval to consort with us The people who arrived late were beckoned down to the stage where they were put in corners with their faces to the wall Others when told reached under their seats to find things they had to bring with them on to the stage Not one person prevaricatedThen again he had a marvellous piece of drama to work with I m a sucker for one man shows so maybe I m showing prejudice here but this is one of the best As it happens I was married for some time to a Singaporean and I found myself rewatching the dramas of family life as my in laws had earlier played them out It was word for word idea for idea identical Even the name my ex mother in law s name is Emily And just as Emily in the play insisted that her son would not make a living out of mucking about with horses so too my ex mother in law insisted that her son would not make a living as a cocktail pianist This used to make me so sad He was a brilliant musician of that type He had perfect pitch was a lovely improviser and playing the piano gave him the same sweet faraway look he had during sex How could you take that away from somebodyIn the play Emily s son kills himself rather than buckle to her will In real life my ex ended up some years ago having to be bailed out of a business problem to the tune of millions As his parents covered for him I wonder if for one moment real life Emily doubted the wisdom of her decisions Certainly the play Emily regrets hers Entertaining harrowing and utterly utterly real If you have the least interest in the story of a matriarch or the culture of Singapore this is a mustA completely irrelevant aside which will interest only the chess players of the Southern Hemisphere The playwright s father was Dr Lim Kok Ann a really important figure in chess administration for many years and also I hadn t realised famous for isolating the Asian flu virus in the late 1950s
