My Cousin Tim and My Grandfather Tim by Simon Tay

Watch the words of Gopal Baratham, Colin Cheong, Philip Jeyaretnam and Simon Tay spring to life in the hands of these two performers, as they play characters ranging from a teacher turned life coach to an estranged relative returning to reconnect with their straight-laced but idolising cousin.
