The Fearful King by Paper Monkey Theatre, 8-10 Mar, various timings, Siglap South Community Club

The Fearful King is performed with newly developed puppets based on the traditional ‘Wayang’ puppetry. Inspired by the friendship of an Indonesian Sultan and a Portuguese Explorer in the 16th Century, this show speaks of overcoming cultural differences and triumphing over discrimination and prejudice. When a hero drove away an evil king, he was crowned as the new king, and a feast was prepared. But when the new king ate the food, he was struck with a terrible curse. In his anger, the new king punished the villagers severely. The villagers became afraid of their new king, and the new king grew fearful of the villagers as well. Soon after, the old evil king is sighted on the seas, returning with an army. More information.
