There’s a new theatre company in town, and they’re about to debut their first ever performance. This May, Bored Whale Theatre is set to perform Unsolicited Advice From My Ex, a double bill of new work written and directed by Wisely Chow.
The first play, Unsolicited Advice From My Ex-(Self), follows Damian meeting up with Jordan at a cafe, an old friend whom they had not seen in ages. As they battle through the awkwardness of small talks and the inevitable reminiscing of the past, we soon notice that the cafe is not what it seems and discover the reason for this meeting.
In the second play, Unsolicited Advice From My Ex-(Friend), Esha and Diti are two ex-friends trapped in a room together, with no way out. What starts out as petty digs at one another soon submerges us in their trip down a hypnotic memory lane, uncovering the mystery of how they got trapped and who locked them up in this strange room in the first place.
If you could give a piece of advice to someone, who’s that someone you have in mind? What would you say? And what does it come down to? Featuring a cast comprising Azura Farid, Dennis Sofian and Masturah Oli, face the past together with Bored Whale Theatre as Unsolicited Advice From My Ex premieres this May.
Unsolicited Advice From My Ex plays from 13th to 16th May 2021 at RUMAH P7:1SMA, Stamford Arts Centre #03-01. Tickets available from Peatix
