Description

The Finger Players presents

Not In My Lifetime?

An inclusive theatre experience co-presented with Gateway Academy


The (r)evolution of special education



SYNOPSIS:

Not In My Lifetime? explores the special education system in Singapore and people in it. The play, based on the experiences of playwright Alvan Yap, is supported by multi-talented performers Inch Chua, Evelyn Chye, Myra Loke, Timothy Nga, Nix Sang and Nur Shafiza (Shai).

Two special education teachers navigate the ups and downs of school life and examine the challenges they face in their interactions with authorities, parents and the students themselves. This inclusive theatre performance shines a harsh but much-needed spotlight on the field of special education, one which is usually overlooked or obscured by platitudes. It also examines what makes special education teachers stay on… or move on.
