each con­trib­uted their own true story.

In Gavin’s able hands, our year-end show The One Thing I Don’t Have Right Now (which we all also wrote, of­ten based on true, hu­mor­ous, wist­ful and oc­ca­sion­ally gut-wrench­ing ex­pe­ri­ences) was well-re­ceived. It, too, had “ex­plo­sive” mo­ments of its own.

Thus, when Gavin asked if we would like to help out with the next sea­son – to cre­ate a warm, wel­com­ing and en­cour­ag­ing space for ner­vous the­atre new­bies – it took only a moment for Alex, Wai Keat, Ade­line, Azhar and my­self to give a re­sound­ing “Yes!” We were ably joined by our stage man­ager from The One Thing I Don’t Have Right Now, Rosheen Fatima.

So we helped fa­cil­i­tate this year’s sea­son, which ran from Fe­bru­ary to July and un­cov­ered a whole slew of ex­cit­ing, di­verse and very en­ter­tain­ing pieces, and peo­ple! And that’s how an eclec­tic group of artists – in­clud­ing filmmaker Khairil M. Ba­har, copy­writer Toby Teh, Ni­tia, lawyer Joshua Chong, web de­signer Justin Wong, Jeremy Ooi, Ian Homer, Amanda Ang, Aizat Zain­ud­din, Malin B. Erik­son, Muna Win­der and Marvin Wong – were brought to­gether for Lost And Found.

Draw­ing from their own life ex­pe­ri­ences, they each con­trib­ute their own true sto­ries to this heart-warm­ing piece, just as we did. From what I hear, the show will give an en­ter­tain­ing and in­sight­ful new per­spec­tive on the sub­jects of loss and self-dis­cov­ery. If their ex­pe­ri­ence is any­thing like ours, it will be.
