Eavesdrop on this funny and poignant celebration about the real-life trials and triumphs of Claire Wong and Noorlinah Mohamed as they look after their respective aging mothers.

One mother speaks Cantonese, the other speaks Malay. Two daughters navigate the balance between their mothers’ worlds and the fast-paced, English-speaking life of Singapore.

A humorous and poignant glimpse into the complexities of the mother-daughter relationship, Claire Wong and Noorlinah Mohamed share with us their stories of their mothers, who somehow seem just as familiar as ours.

This piece is performed in Cantonese, English and Malay.

Supported by the National Arts Council Singapore, with the assistance of CultureLink.
