THE WRITERS' LAB
Writers’ Lab goes to the Community
Performance Tour to the South East District from 23 Feb to 11 Mar 2017
Mixed is a winning play of the 24-Hour Playwriting Competition 2016 (Youth Category) and is presented as part of TheatreWorks' Writers' Laboratory Writing & Community Programme in partnership with the South East Community Development Council.
Growing up Chindian in Singapore has not been easy for Anika Lee. Her parents, Cassandra and Lee, have fought hard their whole life to protect their kids from racial tensions both in their family and out. At 21, Anika has cultivated a fire in her that allows her to navigate the difficulties of being mixed. Now a teacher-in-training, she is whole, and ready to fight for what she believes in. She even has her eye on a guy at the job she loves…
Mixed scrutinizes a racial divide that is supposedly cracked, bringing to light fragments that still have the power to cut. Mixed is a play about loss, it’s also about love – it’s about falling. And it’s about getting back up.
The Performance Tour of Mixed is performed at three different locations in the South East District, each offering audiences a new experience of the play, from February to March 2017.
Performed in English
Approximately 45 minutes
There will be a post-show dialogue after each performance
