10 July 2019 – 13 July 2019 @ 72-13 Mohamed Sultan Road


Three Fat Virgins Unassembled (3FVU), Ovidia Yu’s critically acclaimed play written in the early 1990s, is re-assembled with some of the brightest talents in the media and theatre industry today. 3FVU is a pointed and hilarious critique, told by four women learning to accept themselves.

In re-staging for the contemporary audience, the question the cast and director Grace Kalaiselvi ask is: Have things changed for women? Are we still struggling with the same concerns? Do women of today have a different story to tell?
