Play description

Singapore 2008. With the economy booming and the demand for land intense, the young, the old – and the dead – are forced to jostle for space to call their own: a property developer’s mother refuses to move from their family home to make way for his new and very profitable apartment block; whilst a psychic civil servant – charged with relocating a cemetery – has come up against the most stubborn corpse yet.
