Writers’ Lab goes to the Community            

The Good Farmer
Performance Tour to the South East District from 8 to 24 March 2018

The Good Farmer is a winning play of the 24-Hour Playwriting Competition 2017 (Open Category) and is presented as part of TheatreWorks' Writers' Laboratory Writing & Community programme in partnership with the South East Community Development Council.

Jacob Teo and Joseph Teo, identical twins but born minutes apart. Jacob on 30th June and Joseph on 1st July. Out of convenience, their birthdays were celebrated on the same day each year on 1st July… starting from when they were 11, the year they were separated into EM1 and EM2, all the way till adulthood.

One child excelled in his studies while the other struggled to keep up.  Average Jacob Teo versus Public Service Commission scholar Joseph Teo.

Was it favouritism or inferiority complex that made them different? And what happens when one child goes missing? The Good Farmer, brings up questions that many people choose not to answer.
