Event Details

Every year, when 9 August rolls around, we put on our red and white outfits, we hang up our flags and we sing our songs. The Red Lions descend, the F16s roar and the tanks roll across our television screens. The Kallang wave sweeps across the stands, people laugh and dance and cry, and we keep on marching from Third World to First.

For as long as most of us can remember, there has been no other way to think of Singapore’s National Day. But what if we could re-imagine how we commemorate and celebrate this historic day? What untold stories would we share? Who would we want to see representing us in our parade? And what songs would we write and sing to one another?

Part irreverent satire, part complicated love letter to a country that isn’t always easy to love, National Day Charade will make you laugh, cry and think about this place we call home. Don’t miss this brand-new play from award-winning playwright Thomas Lim, who has won the hearts of audiences with his profoundly insightful work, from Grandmother Tongue and Supervision to Straight Acting. Come decked out in your National Day best for a national celebration unlike any you’ve seen before!

Written & Directed by Thomas Lim
Starring Shane Mardjuki, Krish Natarajan, Nurulhuda Hassan & Deonn Yang with Andrew Marko
