Full of humour and incisive dialogue, this play tells a story of family conflicts. Goh is among the pioneer Singaporean writers and one of the first to use "Singlish", the characteristic Singaporean popular language.

 A man comes back to life and the reactions of his family and friends really surprise him!

Engaging and quirky, Geez! is a wonderful example of avant-garde Indonesian theatre.

Apparently simple, there's a dark mystery in this play set in a waiting room of a hospital after a car crash.
