Born into an upper middle class family, John Au Yong’s pleasures in life are sex and money. However, he begins to reflect about things that are really important in life when he meets his old college sweetheart, Anna. The impending meeting triggers memories of his past loves and losses, his boxed-in teenage years in Singapore, and his liberating experience in New York, which unlocks an unrestrained monologue about his affluent lifestyle and his fast-paced but empty life.

Written by Huzir Sulaiman in 2011, Tracie Pang uncovers the pain and hidden nuances that lie at the heart of a man’s disenchanted soul. Starring Adrian Pang as the forlorn playboy, The Weight of Silk on Skin brings poetic release to one man’s story of love, lust and loss.
First staged as part of Man Singapore Theatre Festival 2011, Huzir Sulaiman’s poignant monologue was an instant hit with the audience and critics. It won Best Original Script at the Life! Theatre Awards 2012.
