Model Citizens
A man stabs an MP at a Meet the People Session. But this is not their story.

It is the story of the man’s girlfriend, an Indonesian maid who wants to get married and become a Singapore citizen. It is the story of the MP’s wife, who tries to cope with her husband’s injury and the media spotlight. It is the story of the maid’s employer, who is also struggling with her own tragedy.

These 3 women may mean nothing to each other, but they need one another to survive.

The maid, the employer and the MP’s wife. Are they all model citizens?

Director Alvin Tan and Playwright Haresh Sharma, who have been working together for more than two decades, return with another original, thought-provoking work.
Model Citizens features theatre stalwarts Goh Guat Kian, Siti Khalijah Zainal and Karen Tan.

In 2011, Alvin Tan won Best Director and Siti Khalijah Zainal won Best Actress for Model Citizens at the Life! Theatre Awards.
