The Ngee Ann Kongsipresents W!LD RICE’s Grandmother Tonguewritten & directed by THOMAS LIM starring JALYN HAN, TAN SHOU CHEN & REI POHGrandmother Tongue, the sold-out smash hit of the 2016 Singapore Theatre Festival, returns for a limited season!In a Singapore where dialects have been losing relevance for generations, Grandmother Tongue traces a young man’s struggle to connect with his 84-year-old Teochew-speaking grandmother. He teaches her to use a mobile phone. He helps her buy her favourite brand of soya sauce. He visits her in hospital after a fall. Along the way, he begins to understand just what it means to spend decades in linguistic and cultural exile.Inspired by Kuo Pao Kun’s seminal Mama Looking For Her Cat, Thomas Lim’s funny, insightful play examines the social costs of our mother-tongue language policy and the erasure of dialects in today’s Singapore. In ways both humorous and heartbreaking, Grandmother Tongue explores how our identities are bound up with the languages that we use and the ones that we lose.Performed in Teochew, Mandarin and English, with English and Chinese surtitles.TALKBACK THURSDAY Meet the artists and deepen your experience of the play in these lively post-show discussions on Thursdays 5 Oct, 12 Oct and 19 Oct 2017.SIGN LANGUAGE INTERPRETED PERFORMANCE As part of W!LD RICE's commitment to diversity and inclusion, the 8pm performance on Sat 14 Oct 2017 will be simultaneously interpreted in Singapore Sign Language (SgSL) for the deaf and hearing impaired.
