《纪念日,再见》See You, Anniversary

Kelvin and Annie have been together for 29 years, from the time they met and fell in love, to the time they got married, had a child, and started a business together.

In the end, who remembers? And who is reminiscing?

凯文和安妮从相识,相恋,到结婚,生孩子,共同创业,一起度过了29年。他们维持关系的方法是,一定要庆祝周年纪念日,而且还要一起回忆他们的许多第一次 — 第一次约会、第一次接吻、第一次牵手、第一次分手… 但是现实的生活步伐,却不允许他们永远往回看。最终,谁还记得,是谁在思念?

First Fleet

Nine Years Theatre and Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre jointly present to you First Fleet. Audience will be seated in the same space with the actors, along an outline of a “ship” as the ship sets sail to explore the relationships between theatre and humanity.

The year is 1787. The First Fleet of the British Empire sets sail for Australia with a group of convicts aboard, to establish a penal colony. Along the way, the Governor instructs one of his lieutenants to rehearse a play with the convicts, with the hope of using the power of theatre to rehabilitate them.
But who has ever heard of an officer putting up a play with his convicts? Certainly not the other officers, priest, judge, doctor or the convicts, who all have reservations about such a ridiculous proposition. Will they eventually be able to stage the play successfully?

For these officers and convicts, is the foreign land that they are attempting to build a penal colony in, a brave new world or simply a nightmare from hell?

*First Fleet is inspired by Thomas Keneally’s novel The Playmaker and other materials on the convict transportation to Australia.

Date and Day: Fri - Sun, 5 - 14 March 2021

Timing: Tues - Sat: 7.30pm | Sat & Sun: 2.30pm

Venue: Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre, Far East Organization Auditorium, Level

Between You and Me

Between You and Me 《你我之间》

A long hidden secret rises to the fore— and with it, cracks begin to appear in the familial ties between a mother and her three daughters. Are the bonds between them strong enough to weather this impending crisis?

Forced into retirement due to her ailing health, a veteran film and TV actress finds herself missing the glitz and the attention. These days, actress Lin Li Qing occupies her time thinking up ways to battle boredom, and nagging at her three daughters for not spending enough time with her. The eldest, Shi Qi, is embroiled in a secret divorce; the second daughter, Shi Lin, is a respected stage actress fighting self-doubt and a stagnating career; and the youngest, Shi Jie, tires of her mother’s constant nagging to find a life partner.

In a bolt from the blue, Li Qing wins a prestigious acting award, thrusting her back into the spotlight and also onto the theatre stage with Shi Lin. Staged conflicts become reality as mother and second daughter clash time and again, dredging up decades of hurt and dragging Shi Qi and Shi Jie into a whirlpool of suppressed emotions.

Not long after, the family gathers to celebrate Li Qing’s 70th birthday. Outside, the rain clouds converge ominously…

Celebrating 10 illustrious years, Nine Years Theatre joins hands with Huayi – Chinese Festival of Arts once again, to commemorate the festival’s 20th anniversary with the company’s debut production in the Esplanade Theatre. An original play written and directed by award winning local theatre stalwart, Nelson Chia, and featuring a stellar cast of actors such as Goh Guat Kian, Sharon Au, Mia Chee, Jean Ng, Johnny Ng, and Liow Shi Suen, Between You and Me tells the secrets inherent in every family.

Date and Day: Fri - Sun, 11-13 Feb 2022, 18 Feb & 19 Feb 2022

Timing: Fri & Sat: 8pm, Sun: 3pm

Venue: Esplanade Theatre
