introvert. the musical

by Katy Schutte

Were musicals made by extroverts for extroverts? Perhaps it’s time to see how introverts would do it. Will there still be jazz hands? What if anxiety, depression and ADHD got in there too.

This is an exploration of the things that bring us joy and the things that make us comfortable on stage. What are the coping mechanisms of actors and would the audience like to know about them and see them?

What if you don’t like to join in with a singalong? Are you the last person to raise their hand when someone asks for a volunteer?

At last, a musical for and by introverts.

THOSE WERE THE DAYS

by Theodore E Hung

Those Were the Days is a work in progress that focuses on a third-generation British-Chinese family living in London. Highlighting the conflict of traditional Chinese values in a contemporary world, the play follows the complex relationship between three siblings in the aftermath of the father’s death.

The chain of events depicted in the play begins when the eldest sibling, Edward, fails to attend their father’s funeral. As a result, cracks in the family soon turn into full-blown ruptures. Will Andrea, middle child and only daughter, be able to repair the once strong bond between the siblings and reunite the family?

Exploring ideas of family conflict, traditional values, and shame. Those Were the Days reviews these universal themes through the lens of a contemporary Chinese family.

In this extract, we witness an interaction between Andrea and Richard, the youngest sibling after the funeral in their family home. This is where it all began and where it will eventually end.

This extract from Those Were the Days is directed by Lucy Sheen. Andrea is played by Eugenia Low and Richard by Nathaniel Tan.
