3 July 2003 – 17 July 2003 @ Singapore Repertory Theatre, Singapore

Synopsis

What happens when Malaysia decides to build an atomic bomb?

One of Asia’s classic satires. Deliciously politically incorrect, Atomic Jaya takes a caustic look at national hubris. We follow the intrepid physicist Dr. Mary Yuen as she takes on the top-secret national project and meets a madcap assortment of characters, from uranium smugglers to cabinet ministers, canteen ladies to a certain general with a Napoleonic fixation. Hilarious writing and virtuoso acting with 3 actors taking all 14 roles make for an unforgettable theatrical experience.
