Chasing Yesterday

Dear fellow NUS students/staff,

NUS Stage presents Chasing Yesterday, a double-bill of new Singapore plays. These are stories told with urgency, sensitivity and aplomb, asking difficult questions about human struggles grand and small, familiar and extraordinary.Valerie-Ann Tan’s ‘Begin’ is the story of an intelligent young woman coming to terms with her impending death. Gwendolyn Lee’s ‘Chasing Yesterday’ is a loving portrait of three siblings at different points in their lives. A production with great heart and honesty, this showcase of new writing will surprise and inspire.

The plays are directed by NUS undergraduates: ‘Begin’ by Kim Tan and ‘Chasing Yesterday’ by Chen Ying Xuan under the mentorship of the artistic co-directors of Checkpoint Theatre : Huzir Sulaiman and Claire Wong.

Show dates: 31 October (Wednesday) and 1 November (Thursday)

Show Time: 8pm
