Lemmings and The Wedding Pig: A Double Bill
Synopsis

Lemmings
John and Cassandra are a happy couple. They don't talk about God or god. It is easier that way for both of them. The topic becomes unavoidable after one evening's events, exposing the long-drawn out silences on their opposing views on faith.

2nd prize winner of the 24-Hour Playwriting Competition (Youth Category) in 2012, Lemmings opens the doors to the difficult conversations about faith that have always been swept under the rug.

Maybe sometimes, it's better to talk about it.

The Wedding Pig
Leah and Debbie are siblings – they fight, banter and do all the things that sisters do. But an upcoming wedding, some holiday magnets and the resurfacing of a golden pig throw a few wrenches in their relationship, forcing them to choose between banding together or risk losing something greater.

A dark comedy, The Wedding Pig by debut playwright Chelsea Cheo is a feminist musing on how two sisters navigate their rivalries, jealousies, a wedding and their own strange sisterly love for each other.
