The Moon is Less Bright by Goh Poh Seng

February 14, the Japanese troops are approaching.

The Tay's household, rural Singapore. A welcoming offer of shelter from certain danger in the city turns into an uneasy living arrangement between two families worlds apart in class. Will their convictions and world-views hurt or help each other? Will they bother seeing past their trappings? Or rather, can they?

The Moon Is Less Bright presents a provoking look at our instinctive class consciousness, how we carry ourselves and judge others. When we resent privilege in others and insist on our set of values: are they well-founded or misguided, for better or worse?

The Second Breakfast Company's re-staging of Singapore literary pioneer and Cultural Medallion recipient Goh Poh Seng's first play is a poetic drama revived for the modern stage to examine current concerns of privilege and inequality in Singapore, 55 years since it was first written.
