Over the next month, you’ll be able to enjoy some of Singapore’s very best theatre for free – including our critically acclaimed productions of Emily of Emerald Hill, Supervision and Monkey Goes West. Each title will be streaming on YouTube for one week.
We’d also love for you to join us for a live talkback every Thursday at 9pm. These post-show discussions are the perfect opportunity for artists and audiences to come together after sharing in a theatrical experience.
For those interested in exploring the plays at home, free resource packs will be available online. These will include in-depth interviews and suggested activities for children and students.
So, while we’re all staying safe by staying home, let us entertain you!
