A royal proclamation is seen pinned to your door. It reads:
Hear Ye! Hear Ye! The kingdom is calling for young Compassionates for the next harvesting season!
Enter the city walls and fulfil your rightful duty in helping the kingdom ascend to the Central Compassion Hub (CCH) of the region. Under the leadership of Lord Gardos, your Esteemed Noble, you will be given an opportunity to leave your mark and legacy within these very walls. As a Compassionate, you will be assigned to a role and get a chance to make your own choices to help influence the Kingdom’s development (within the King’s plan, of course).
Get ready to immerse yourself in this fantastical kingdom obsessed with compassion and make your own choices for the betterment of your people. Will you stick to your gut, or will you eventually succumb to the insidious pressures lurking in the kingdom’s shadows?
Audience participation is highly encouraged! Use your voice to challenge the various characters you encounter, and you may leave a mark upon this kingdom’s history!
This showcase will consist of a performance and a facilitated discussion with the artists.
This showcase is part of PLAYlab, a developmental platform at Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, targeting budding artists or collectives interested in Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) for children three to six years old. PLAYlab aims to provide opportunities for research and development in the creation of new TYA productions at the centre.
Jayden Lim is a theatre and film actor with four years of professional acting experience, who graduated with a BA(Hons) Acting from LASALLE College of the Arts. As the world becomes increasingly polarised and hyper-digitalised, Jayden embraces the importance of not only asking difficult questions about how humans behave, but also how the world works around him. This is Jayden’s very first theatre production as a scriptwriter and as a director, so he is extremely excited to share his work with the audience.
