Chiu is part of The Singapore Monologue Slam. She will be performing at “Singapore Showcase: Stories for Change” on Sat, 3 June 2017, 5-7pm.
I will be presenting a monologue from the play “People” by local playwright Joel Tan. In this monologue, I play a nurse who talks about her daily work struggles. This character is very real and down-to-earth, but in some ways, she is also larger than life. Her story shows what many people who work in the customer service sector experience, where the customer is always right.
Every story has a message no matter how mundane or crazy it may be. I love listening to stories because it gives me a sense of what the storyteller is feeling as a person and what it reveals about a certain situation. If I can relate to the story, it reassures me that I am not alone in this world. Stories bring faith and hope, especially when dealing with all the wrong things in the world.
