This homegrown theatre classic by Army Daze’s Michael Chiang returns after 14 years, with Chua Enlai, Shane Mardjuki, Jason Godfrey and Zee Wong. This is the critically-acclaimed play’s fourth run since it was first staged in 1990, and is directed by Beatrice Chia-Richmond. Tackling sensitive topics with comedic aplomb and emotional heft, ‘Private Parts’ tells a tale of love, compassion, acceptance and finding one’s self.
