ah hua, an average girl
born in a normal family
leading what seems to be a normal
seems ordinary yet a little extraordinary...
seems typical yet a little uncommon...
a story of a "person"...
"As an adult, we rarely want to listen to another person's story, especially that of an ordinary person. But an ordinary person may be leading an unusual life that we don't know of, which is why I wrote this story."
– Goh Seok Ai
This is the first play written by an ordinary person, Seok Ai.

A radio station struggles to stay afloat in the face of multiple factors threatening to shut it down. A group of passionate radio DJs plough on fervently, fighting for what they believe in, never backing down even when the fight is forcibly taken from them. Is our identity shaped by the desire to fight for what we believe in? Is that identity altered forever if the fight is taken away from us? What, or who, has allowed this to happen?
Let Go Lightly spans three decades, telling the story of a fictional radio station, its gradual decline and eventual closure, and the people who tried to keep it alive.

When the 15-year-old Hong arrived in Singapore from Guangdong in the 1930s, Cantonese Opera was very popular. Hong loved opera but chose to give it up for practical reasons. Years later, his grandson Qiu became an opera star. However, Qiu's fame was short-lived as interest in Cantonese Opera declined in the 1960s. A depressed Qiu chose to leave home and thus becomes uncontactable.
Spanning across 80 years of social-political development and the rise and fall of Cantonese Opera in Singapore through the eyes of the three generations, The Costume is the first stage adaptation of the novel by Cultural Medallion recipient Yeng Pway Ngon.
