Emily takes a sarcastic tone with Susie. She becomes a workaholic that doesn’t see the fun in doing anything else. There’s not a lot of information out there about this particular play, but there is enough to know this much. Furthermore, the play takes place in Singapore, so sarcasm sounds a little out of place. Especially when you consider the fact that both Emily and the family she marries into are Chinese. Chinese people don’t usually use sarcasm, even in the time period when this takes place.


“Emily on Emerald Hill” is the story of Emily and how she marries into a wealthier family. She ends up alienating everyone as she becomes a workaholic, as mentioned before. Due to the copyright, this is a play that isn’t performed freely.
