How thrilling! Tonight, at the opening of "Dreaming of Kuan Yin, Meeting Madonna", I met Rosita Ng, author/performer of "Baby You Can Drive My Car", one of the first Annabel Chong plays in Singapore! Rosita used to be mainly involved in music; she's now a lawyer.

Apparently her version of the play was very much centred on the idea of Chong as a generational phenomenon - how people of earlier generations were unable to understand her. She doesn't have a soft copy of the original script, sadly... sigh, that's what happens to so much theatre in Singapore; it vanishes after bumping out, leaving nothing but skeletal reviews and dodgy video.
