Free Dramaturgically yours… series: Too big? Too small? (Unanimous Best Interpretive Reader!!!)

Kuo Pao Kun’s The coffin is too big for the hole – edited my way

My beloved friends,

After sharing my personalised funnies, and the most recent instalment of the Dramaturgically yours series, Cynthia’s sober! Cheers! (with photos!), it’s time for more satirical humour with Kuo Pao Kun’s The coffin is too big for the hole.

Kuo Pao Kun, born in Hebei, China, in 1939, was awarded in 1989, the Singapore Cultural Medallion – the highest honour bestowed on an artist by the Singapore government each year.

The coffin is too big for the hole was Kuo’s first English play written in 1984.  It was also his strongest entry into the socially and culturally complex world of bi-lingualism and bi-culturalism in Singapore.

The fourth (and second last) of the series, this rendition promises to transport you to the morphing psyche of a filial grandson, and a close-felt identification with hard-walled bureaucracy.

Rock with the satirically grave dilemmas of  Too big? Too small?  Details as follows:
