TheatreWorks presents Saying Grace, a one-man show on the pain of eating and his journey to live. The play is performed by Andrew Lua, written by Hu Fangda and directed by Gerald Chew
Andrew Harvey Lee is seemingly perfect: educated, married, hardworking, a corporate high-flyer. He wants to live well like other Singaporeans do. But he eats and purges himself too much.
A prize-winning entry of the 24-Hour Playwriting Competition 2011 (Youth Category), Saying Grace traces the life of an accountant battling an eating disorder. Follow Andrew’s fall from grace as he negotiates his body, career, family and sanity through a deep plunge past rock bottom. A tussle of mind over matter, society above self, this one-man show offers a rare perspective into the private world of a man who has lived, lost and hopes to live again.
