Stella Kon's monodrama, Emily of Emerald Hill, which chronicles the life and tribulations of a Singaporean Peranakan matriarch, is a landmark play in the dramatic literature of the nation.

It was performed for the first time in Singapore by Margaret Chan at the Singapore Drama Festival in 1985. The production represented the nation at the Commonwealth Arts Festival in Edinburgh in 1986, and then made Singapore English language theatre history when it became the first Singapore show to be invited to the world-famous Edinburgh Festival Fringe in that same year. In Edinburgh, Emily performed at the top theatre venues of the city; the Assembly Rooms and the Traverse Theatre. Emily continues to be performed regularly in Singapore, Malaysia and internationally. The play is a Ministry of Education approved literature text for secondary schools.
