Checkpoint Theatre presents For Better or For Worse

Checkpoint Theatre presents For Better or For Worse Written by Faith Ng Directed by Claire Wong Starring Jean Ng & Julius Foo For Better or For Worse traces the love-hate marriage of middle-aged couple Gerald and Swen. Set against the backdrop of everyday life in modern Singapore, the play is poignant and provocative at every turn. For Better or For Worse makes you laugh, even as it tears apart notions of romantic love while compelling you to embrace the tedium and wonder, and the joys and pains, of marriage. What is this thing called love? Will “I do” lead to a dead end or a glorious future? What does it take to keep a marriage going? Join Gerald and Swen as they realise they are hopelessly yet passionately bound by their marriage vows: to depend on each other no matter what, till death do they part. For Better or For Worse is acclaimed playwright Faith Ng’s newest play, following the success of her debut play wo(men) which garnered her a Best Original Script nomination at the Life! Theatre Awards. In For Better or For Worse, Faith again captures a slice of Singaporean life in her inimitable style that is both crafted yet raw and authentic. She has created utterly believable and thoroughly Singaporean characters who are complex, compelling and colourful. Directed by Claire Wong (who recently directed Checkpoint Theatre’s acclaimed production of Occupation), For Better or For Worse is a powerful and moving account of the ups and downs of love and marriage, and of staying together through the uncertainties of life. Checkpoint Theatre supports new Singapore playwriting, Faith Ng's writing of For Better or For Worse was proudly mentored by Huzir Sulaiman and Checkpoint Theatre.
