“De Change” is a play set in the 1990s when economic tension is high and anxiety fills the air; a time where hopes and dreams dwindle. The story primarily revolves around Choon Huat, a woman in her early twenties. She is a second-rate actress who struggles to keep her dream of being a famous actress alive despite all odds. Choon Huat comes from a broken and poor family, her mother suffers from bronchitis and her good-for-nothing brother, Ah Soon, gambles away what little she brings home. In no time, her brother becomes heavily indebted. Unable to repay what he owes, Choon Huat is forced into prostitution to clear the debt. At the same time, she is betrayed by her best friend, May, when May gets together with the love of her life, Ming Jie. Depressed and desperate, it is not long before she contemplates suicide.
