Following a sellout run at last year’s Singapore International Festival of Arts, Dragonflies takes on new relevance in the current political climate. With the world in the grip of racial and religious persecution, terrorism, civil war, and escalating paranoia against refugees and migrants, what does the future hold for us all?
Written by Singaporean playwright, Stephanie Street, Dragonflies delves into the human effects of political and environmental change.
The year is 2021, and environmental and political chaos is at an all-time high. Following the passing of his wife, Leslie Chen’s life starts to crumble around him. Forced by circumstances to abandon his home in England, he moves his family back to his birthplace of Singapore. Returning to a country that is worlds apart from the one he grew up in, Leslie starts to question the meaning of home.
Dragonflies is a story of a family fighting for survival in a hostile world – looking for somewhere to call home and something that looks like hope.
