18 May - 3 June
Dragonflies tells the story of a family fighting for survival. They are out searching for somewhere to call home and something that looks like hope. Written by Stephanie Street and directed by Tracie Pang, it has a stellar cast including Adrian Pang, Tan Kheng Hua, Fanny Kee, Benjamin Chow, Frances Lee, Elizabeth Morse, Matt Grey, Jamil Schulze, and Shona Benson.
The year is 2021, and environmental and political chaos is at an all-time high. Following the passing of his wife, Leslie Chen’s life starts to crumble around him. Forced by circumstances to abandon his home in England, he moves his family back to his birthplace of Singapore. Returning to a country that is worlds apart from the one he grew up in, Leslie starts to question the meaning of home.
Dragonflies was commissioned by Singapore International Festival of Arts (SIFA) 2017 and marked its debut with a sold-out run. The production returns by popular demand to the Pangdemonium 2018 Season.
