tells a story of Geok Yen, a public relations executive who seemingly has it all – a stable job and a boyfriend who is about to propose. But one fateful office party, her safe stable life gets upturned when on impulse, she attends the party in the guise of a man, Stirling da Silva. Emboldened by the alter ego, Yen discovers a newfound confidence to speak her truth, and be whatever she could be without self-judgement. 

In this one-woman show, Jo Tan delivers a tour de force performance playing multiple characters, navigating expertly through a host of social stereotypes. King was first staged as a live-streamed digital production in 2020 during the pandemic, reaching over 3,000 online viewers both in and beyond Singapore. It garnered five nominations from the Straits Times Life Theatre Awards 2022, and won two awards for Best Actress and Best Original Script.
