Singapore’s well positioned – we’re protected from earthquakes, tornadoes and tsunamis. Enveloped by our neighbouring countries, our little red dot becomes a safe haven for all Singaporeans. No need to worry about natural disasters, no need to rush home before curfews; we live in our safe houses.
Tremors from an earthquake in a neighbouring land shakes up the lives of families as they scramble to hold on to everything they deem dear. Homes are no longer in tact and cracks form on the walls, giving way to uneasiness and confusion. Strange visitors of the equine-kind come knocking as well. With no choice but to step out of their comfort zones, can these families survive? Will they buckle under anxiety of what their uncertain future holds? What will they turn to as an escape from reality?
A middle-aged woman stands and chants fervently, ‘The future is a great place to be. The future is a great place to be.“
The Finger Players and Cake Theatrical Productions bring you Flare, written by Chong Tze Chien and directed by Natalie Hennedige. Inspired by Peter Shaffer’s psychological drama Equus, it will explore human desperation and escapism.
