The Present/Future Season: Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea

A grandmother is dying.
Her grandson is in New York and she’s in Singapore. He refuses to come home and she puts her foot down. She buys him a flat and he buys her a coffin.

A woman and a man are in love.
A third party buys a bed but gets nothing else. Three’s a crowd but no one wants to budge. Does love know no boundaries or is there just too much greed?

A criminal is on the loose.
His father is going berserk. His mother has bought breakfast but no one wants to eat.

The Devil pays all three families a visit and a torrent of tears ensues.
The sea engulfs them and all must learn to float.
Between the devil and the deep blue sea, someone has to make a choice and cope.

Written and directed by The Finger Players Core Team Member, Chong Tze Chien, “Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea” is one of the four theatre productions presented by The Finger Players in collaboration with Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts titled “The Present/Future Season”.
