This year, the University of Warwick Singapore Society, as part of our annual show production, brings you our local adaptation of Chicken Rice Brawl. Starring a cast from our very own Singapore Society, we promise you that this year’s production is going to be bigger and definitely way better.
Chicken Rice Brawl is loosely based on William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. In this movie, the Montagues and Capulets are represented by the Chicken Rice families Ang and Foo. The Ang and Foo families have been at loggerheads from as far as we can remember correctly. Both families run their Chicken Rice stalls side next to each other in a food market, something that common sense says will not turn out too well. Apart from the conflict about the secret Chicken Rice recipes that has been passed down for generations, no one really knows what the deep animosity is all about. The fun all begins when Daniel Ang, the son of the Ang family, falls hopelessly in love with Victoria Foo, the daughter of the Foo family, and how he decides to overcome all obstacles to get her.
Starring Tang Cheuk Wing as Romeo/ Daniel Ang and our SingSoc President, Mifiona Quah, as Juliet/ Victoria Foo, we will bring you through the bitter journey of the unending enmity between two Chicken Rice Stall owners, Ho Sheng Yi as Harry Foo and Claire Tan as Ang Ku.
