Trilogy is a collection of three plays by Haresh Sharma that explores the fundamentals of text and realism by scrutinising pressing issues that affect contemporary society. Written between 2006 and 2008, the plays —Fundamentally Happy, Good People and Gemuk Girls —feature simple but powerful narratives that question personal, social, cultural and political convictions. These award-winning plays represent some of The Necessary Stage's most critically acclaimed works in recent years and are set to be contemporary classics of Singapore theatre.
“From its perfectly apt title to its restrained conclusion, it is experienced like a breath – a sustained, wrenching gasp of wonder, the flesh made word in a swell of gentle brutality.”
—The Straits Times Life! (on Fundamentally Happy)\
“... a beautifully crafted play which will engage you on multiple levels: cognitively, emotionally and possibly even spiritually.”
—Flying Inkpot (on Good People)
“(Gemuk Girls) has weight, and the actors more than ably pull theirs to give us a classic in Singapore theatre.”
—The Business Times (on Gemuk Girls)
