Written by award-winning playwright Jean Tay, Chinatown Crossings is a Promenade Theatre performance based on stories collected from the Chinatown community.
Meet Kunalan, an Indian man who grew up in a Chinatown shophouse during the 1960s. Trace the story of his evolving friendship with Ting Ting, his landlady’s feisty daughter, as well as his relationship with her Cantonese caregiver, Fong Cheh, a majie who became a surrogate mother to him during his growing up years.
Follow Kunalan through the streets of Kreta Ayer and partake in this story of friendship and familial ties. Come experience the insides of a Chinatown shophouse, be treated to an array of interesting adventures in the nooks and crannies scattered across the neighbourhood; and relive the echoes of living in old Singapore through a soundscape; and discover the many lost and forgotten practices, and art forms, of Chinatown’s vibrant community.
