TANGO was commissioned by Pangdemonium as their very first staging of a piece of new Singapore writing. Inspired by true events from the blog "4 Relative Strangers" by James D. Williams, they are very excited to be telling this important story and producing the world premiere of this special play.

Happily married Singapore-born banker Kenneth and British teacher Liam are loving adoptive parents of 12-year-old Jayden, a boy saved from a broken home. Together they are learning to make life work as a family in idyllic suburban England.

When Kenneth returns to Singapore to care for his ailing father, an insidious incident triggers a butterfly effect that escalates into epic proportions. What unfolds is a passionate dance of rage and redemption, as individuals from all walks of life get pulled into the controversy: a fragile family begins to crumble, old wounds between a father and son rip open, a blossoming love affair is nipped in the bud, and an elderly woman sees her simple world-view turned inside out. And in the eye of this storm is young Jayden, learning the hard way about the true meaning of "family values".

Acclaimed Singaporean playwright Joel Tan has created a modern tale that asks urgent and provocative questions about love, acceptance, compassion, tradition, and the infuriating complexities of family. A 21st century fable that gives us an idea of where Singapore fits into the 21st century world, TANGO is timely and topical, poignant and profound, hilarious and heart-wrenching. And above all, humane.

Directed by Tracie Pang. Starring Koh Boon Pin, Emil Marwa, Lim Kay Siu, Lok Meng Chue, Anita Kapoor, Benjamin Chow, Ruzaini Mazani, and introducing Dylan Jenkins.
