Ovidia Yu: Eight Plays
by Ovidia Yu
Fall in love with Singapore’s most prominent feminist playwright. Ovidia Yu dissects all things female—from breasts to virginity, motherhood to lesbian love—and lays them bare in this omnibus collection of her finest works, including The Woman in a Tree on the Hill, the only Singapore play to win the Edinburgh Fringe First award.
Ovidia Yu has written over thirty plays including The Woman in a Tree on the Hill, the only Singapore play to win an Edinburgh Fringe First. In her writing, she uses humour and storytelling to address the changing roles and identities of Singaporeans, on the principle that without entertainment there can be no engagement. Ovidia Yu received the National Arts Council Young Artist Award (Drama and Fiction), the Singapore Youth Award (Arts and Culture), and the Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry Singapore Foundation Award for outstanding contribution to the development of arts.
