~ Pearlly's Engagement with Emily ~

Pearlly took on the challenging role of Emily in 1990 to raise funds for Singapore Lions Club (Cairnhill) and Singapore Action Group of Elders charity drive for the Sage Elders’ Village project. It was a very successful outing as it raised about S103,000

Since then, she has performed the play to critical acclaim in Seremban, Kuala Lumpur, Ipoh, Penang, Melaka, Johore Bahru and Kuching among other venues such as hotels, restaurants and clubs for a total of 103 performances to-date in revivals of the play in 1995, 1999 and 2002.

Some of the performances were successful fund raising projects for the Kiwanis group in Penang and Kuala Lumpur. Twice she was invited by the Association for Commonwealth Literature and Language Studies to perform in 1997 and 1999 when it held its conference in Kuala Lumpur.

She has many fans, some of whom would travel distances to see her perform.

Pearlly’s other stage engagements were Chin San Sooi’s Lady White in 1983 as Maiden Green and in 1989 as Lady White, Chin San Sooi’s Reunion(a musical play) in 1994 as Khoo Siew Hoon, Claire Wong’s Mergers and Accusations in 1998 as Leslie Ryan, Leow Puay Tin’s Mrs Yang’s Birthday Party in 1998 as Mrs Yang and Roland Lee’s Jiang Qing (Her Story Untold) in 2000 as Jiang Qing. Pearlly also devised and directed a play, Identity AIDS in 1988.
