Sypnosis

And So He Gave Me These Sounds by Amanda Leong

‘After you left, the music shop feels empty all the time. It didn’t feel like that before.’

In a music shop, Daniel makes his home. It is safe there because it is his and he has his music. But no matter how loud the songs are played, it cannot drown out his silence. This play is about being forgotten but not forgetting.

Issues discussed within the play are native to Singaporeans and are an accurate reflection of the Singapore we live in. Members of the public of any age and background will be able to relate to the struggles and triumphs within the plays. An enriching experience for all.

Of Dreams and Reality by Megan Ann Pang

Peter Pan is the boy who never grows up, who stays little, who dares to dream. 14 year old Chloe has big aspirations for herself to prove to the people around her that she is capable of achieving the unconventional, the extraordinary. In a world of flux, people are forced to move with the ticking hands of the clock and no matter how young or old or innocent or wise, we are all made to evolve into a larger version of ourselves, or sometimes we shrink a little on the inside.
