The Studios 2019: My Grandfather's Road (RHDS)
- SYNOPSIS -
Neo Kim Seng grew up in Pasir Panjang on Neo Pee Teck Lane, a side road named after his grandfather, until he moved out in 1973. My Grandfather’s Road is a collection of stories of the familial haven that stood along the road, stories that have helped him reconnect with his idyllic childhood and his family’s history. It does not dwell in nostalgia but instead explores how personal stories make us who we are.
The latest iteration of My Grandfather’s Road includes new stories that were unearthed, new speculations and reflections, and forgotten histories.
Karen Tan will be joined on stage by Loong Seng Onn in the English version. In the Cantonese version, Tan Cher Kian and Gary Tang come together, this time questioning who is telling the real story.
My Grandfather’s Road was first created in 2015 for Cake Theatrical Productions’ Running With Strippers. The Cantonese version was developed and presented as The Vault: My Grandfather’s Road, a programme of Centre 42, in Nov 2017.
The 2019 presentation of My Grandfather’s Road (RHDS) was developed in residence at Centre 42.
