ABOUT THE PLAY
Boom tells the story of an elderly woman and her property agent son, who are struggling over the potential en bloc sale of their home in Singapore. Their destinies become intertwined with that of an idealistic civil servant, Jamie, who is facing the biggest challenge of her career - persuading a reluctant corpse to yield his memories.
In our adaptation of Boom by Jean Tay, we hope that you will not only find the sights and sounds of home familiar but also our attempt to give voices to some of our quieter struggles, hopes and desires - our aspirations in a new environment, the longing for the comfort of the past, and the bittersweet experience of holding on to memories and letting go.
May Boom resonate with you.
