Coming Soon: Jean Tay’s “Everything But the Brain”

July 13, 2013

EBTBPoster1Event: Jean Tay’s “Everything But the Brain” presented by Sight Lines Productions
Venue: DBS Arts Centre
Run: 10th – 21st Aug 2013

Next month, Sight Lines Productions proudly presents the award-winning “Everything But the Brain” by Jean Tay.

First staged in 2005 and then again in 2007, each time to sold out runs, this is one of the classic plays in Singapore’s theatre repertoire which won two Straits Times Life! Theatre Awards in 2006 – Best Original Script, and Best Actor for Gerald Chew.

“Everything But the Brain” illustrates the timeless story of an ageing father and the love of her daughter which remains universal and relatable.

With an ageing population, it has never been a better time to cast the spotlight on the emotional suffering of a stroke-afflicted patient (or any other medical condition), as well as the ongoing struggle and heartbreak faced by their caregivers.

Apart from veteran actors such as Gerald Chew (who will reprise his award-winning role as Father in “Everything But the Brain”), Koh Wan Ching (“A Cage Goes In Search of A Bird”) and Edward Choy (“Ashputtel: The Story of Cinderella”), the production also stars young emerging talents who are the next generation of actors – Faizal Abdullah (“Fear of Writing” & “Tongues”), Amanda Tee (“Macbeth” & “National Broadway Company”) and Cassandra Spykerman (“Sisters”).

For “Everything But the Brain”, Sight Lines Productions has partnered with the Singapore National Stroke Association (SNSA) and the Health Promotion Board to raise greater awareness of the fight against stroke as well as the necessity and critical importance of timely intervention in the event of a stroke.

A performance is also dedicated to raise funds through a Charity Gala Night in aid of the Singapore National Stroke Association.

Heart-wrenching and hilariously moving, “Everything But the Brain” discusses the human nature and the strength of love in the face of life’s unpredictable obstacles that will touch every theatregoer’s heart.

Show Dates & Times: 10th – 21st Aug (Tue – Fri 8pm, Sat & Sun 3pm & 8pm)
Play Duration: Approx. 90 mins
