He doesn’t know where he is, or how to get out. The show uses absurdism to tackle existentialism and deals with fundamental questions like, “Who am I?” and “Why am I here?”.
The show promises to push the conventions of theatre and bring your through a journey into the unknown. Held at the Drama Centre Black Box at the National Library, tickets costs $38 or $45 (excluding booking fees) and the production will last for 75 minutes with no intermission. Get your tickets here.

Most expats live a cushioned life in Singapore and we believe it is important to look outside of our so called ‘expat bubble’. Do you know how many domestic workers there are in Singapore? What their working and living conditions are like? What happens when things go wrong with the employer? And what can we do to help them lead happier, healthier and more fulfilling lives while they are working here, away from their families?
We have invited three experts in the field to tell us more about the life of domestic workers. They will help us understand their rights, violations, current legislation, but most importantly, how WE can enable them to build a better and brighter future.
