People will be showing at the Drama Centre Black Box (Level 5) from 24 to 26 January 2014. Creative Edge’s maiden production, this 90-minute play explores the people we live, eat and commute with and how far one will go to make a connection and save a relationship. Suitable for 16 years and above.

Do relationships withstand the test of time and wrongdoings?
What happens when adversity pays a surprise visit?
Do we only learn to love after we have lost?
People features various lives directly and indirectly affected by each other and the 2011 earthquake in Tokyo.

“The strands that connect us are frail, so don't hang great weights on slender wires.”
― John Geddes, A Familiar Rain

Loosely connected by an earthquake in Japan, People takes an intimate look at the lives of fourteen individuals and the frail strands, and sometimes great weights that connect them.

Cue Susan, a nurse; KTV Lounge employees Qing and Jiok; David and Kong, not the ideal father and not the ideal son; Hock, a son of Singapore following his heart straight to New York; Lily, who has trouble doing the same; Francis, who could have but didn’t; Alex and Regina, with eights years of history; and Natalie and Valerie, sisters—sort of.

These are the stories of normal people trying to lead their normal lives the best way they know how. Multiple vignettes show how they choose to form relationships and severe ties, seize opportunities or let them go, and manage to deal with the consequences of their own tiny catastrophes, while somehow fatefully affected by the grand catastrophe happening many miles away but still hitting close to home.

A story of past, present and wonderment about what may be, People explores and questions what it means to be a person—the need to cherish what one has, to accept what one has lost, and perhaps most of all, the unceasing attempt to be understood and remain connected.
