Publisher: The Necessary Stage

Trilogy is a collection of three plays by Haresh Sharma that explore the fundamentals of text and realism by scrutinising pressing issues that affect contemporary society.

Written between 2006 and 2008, the plays – Fundamentally Happy, Good People and Gemuk Girls – feature simple but powerful narratives that question personal, social, cultural and political convictions.

These award-winning plays represent some of The Necessary Stage’s most critically-acclaimed works in recent years and are set to be contemporary classics of Singapore theatre.


"From its perfectly apt title to its restrained conclusion, it is experienced like a breath - a sustained wrenching gasp of wonder, the flesh made word in a swell of gentle brutality." 

-THE STRAITS TIMES LIFE! (on Fundamentally Happy) 

"... a beautifully crafted play which will engage you on multiple levels: cognitively, emotionally and possibly even spiritually." 

-FLYING INKPOT (on Good People) 

"(Gemuk Girls) has weight, and the actors more than ably pull theirs to give us a classic in Singapore theatre." 

-THE BUSINESS TIMES (on Gemuk Girls)
