We Are Like This Only 3

April 20, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - April 30, 2023 @ 10:00 pm


We Are Like This Only 3” is back to explore the real and perceived impressions that Singaporeans, particularly the Chinese, have of the ‘New Indians” in our community and vice versa. The comical play takes on a number of racist and xenophobic peeves that have been amplified on social media, wrestling with real and anecdotal situations with humour and a sense of the ridiculous. These include incidents during the lockdown, feelings of being crowded out, locals’ perception of job competition, stereotyping Indian doctors, employer-employee relationships, the perceived arrogance/stand-offishness of new Indians and more. At the end of an entertaining evening at the theatre combined with the possibility that folks will go home a little bit wiser, accepting that we are all “different but same same”, a forum theatre style interactive discussion between the audience and the actors will bring out personal observations, emotions and challenges of integrating in Singapore.

“We Are Like This Only 3” directed by Daisy Irani Subaiah and written by Subin Subaiah, will be performed by the brilliant cast of award winning actors Josephine Tan, Daisy Irani, Hang Qian Chou and Subin Subaiah.

“We Are Like This Only 3” will also feature the designs of 2022’s Life!Theatre award winning Lighting Designer Alberta Wileo, Set Design by Keng San from On Staging, and our very own “Tea Party Rap” written by Preetipls (also known as Preeti Nair).
