Emily of Emerald Hill programme (Singapore Arts Festival)

This is the programme of the Singapore Arts Festival 2010, with the image of Dr Margaret Chan as the title character of Stella Kon’s play. This year marked a reprisal of the role of Emily Gan for Dr Chan, the first Singaporean to originate the role of Emily on Singapore stages. Stella Kon is an award-winning Singapore playwright whose most important work was the 1983 one-woman play, Emily of Emerald Hill. She is also a descendent of two prominent Peranakan philanthropists, Tan Tock Seng and Dr Lim Boon Keng.
