The Next Generation

27 - 28 Feb 2010

Esplanade Theatre Studio

As part of Huayi 2010 Festival commission: SCENES

The Next Generation is about the unfulfilled sentiments of three women from two generations who are trapped by the fact that there is only one male from the younger generation. It explores the status of the traditional versus the contemporary female in a male-oriented society. The only male - the son - is an Aids-stricken homosexual, and his homosexuality terminates the family tree. It is a grave issue concerning blood ties and carrying on the family name. Against the Lim family's idea of collective interest, can females be ignored as human beings? Who will budge in thie tug-of-war between compassion and the system?

Original play by Lim Soon Lan in 1992, written under then The Practice Theatre Ensemble's (later renamed The Theatre Practice) scriptwriting programme. Adapted by reowned Hong Kong director Tang Shu-wing, featuring creative talents and casts from Singapore and Hong Kong.
