If you are tired of superficial entertainment and want to go for a thought-provoking performance for a change, head to Victoria Theatre this February, where The Necessary Stage’s critically acclaimed play, Off Centre, will make a return after 26 years since its premiere in 1993.
Written by Haresh Sharma and directed by Alvin Tan, this play follows an unlikely friendship between Saloma and Vinod (played by Abdulattif Abdullah and Sakinah Dollah) and presents an honest perspective towards mental illness and the social stigma that surrounds it. Standard tickets cost either $36 or $45. Visit Sistic for more information.
