A double-bill featuring brand new works by members of The Necessary Stage’s Theatre for Seniors programme who take charge of playwriting, directing, acting and backstage work, all under the mentorship of theatre professionals!

Rise of the Phoenix comprises two plays—Waste, (written by Faith Ng and directed by Senior Associate Thomas Lim) which chronicles the story of Peter Lee, a tour guide whose wife leaves him and is haunted by the ghost of his mother, and Lost (written by Senior Associate Eleanor Song and directed by Peter Sau), which explores the unravelling relationships and the revelation of unspoken truths as a mother leaves her family.

Join our seniors as they take flight on a new adventure in theatre-making to fulfil the dreams of their youth.

A festival commission with support from SG50 Seniors.
