The Retrospective
A Festival of Singapore Plays 1960 - 1990

Mimi Fan

Mimi Fan was written in 1962 and first staged by the Experimental Theatre Club.  A play that reflects the conscience of the 1960s, Mimi Fan shows that Singaporeans were as much in search of an inner peace, as their Western counterparts.  The dissatisfaction and impotence felt by foreign-educated intellectuals is seen through the story of the protagonist Chan Fei Loong.  Produced in 1962, Mimi Fan was the first truly Singapore play in English.
