Something terrible is happening in Singapore. It's coming from the sky, from across the sea, from under our feet. Meanwhile, five people find themselves in a cafe in Singapore. Two customers talk obliviously about waffles, selfies and truffle fries while the three cafe staffers wait helplessly for their shift to finish as the calamity draws closer and closer, threatening to burst right through the windows. What does it mean to live comfortably in a world that's never kept still? How do we remain in the world and make peace with it? Can we be nicer to wait staff? More questions than answers, and shot through with the ambivalence of living in modern Singapore, this is a play about the way we live and the things we hope for.

"Café" is a new play written by Joel Tan, one of the two Headliner! playwrights for The Twenty-Something Theatre Festival 2016, which celebrates the creative spirit and voice of 20-something year old theatre makers in Singapore.
