Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Imagine the world's worst first day at work, in the midst of an ongoing pandemic, at that. Watch it all unfold during Contract, a fast-paced 70-minute original play inspired by true events. Theatre troupe The Haque Collective (THC) presents the play which will be performed live over a series of Zoom calls for three days only.
The immersive play follows Jane, a fresh hire at a multinational company, as she stumbles into the world’s worst first day at work over a night of Zoom meetings. Just three hours into her new job, Jane has a tough choice to make: destroy her family and her future or become an accomplice to mask murder?
Suspenseful, witty and ridiculously fit for the strange times we're living in, Contract is a play you shouldn't miss this December.
"Set to be staged just two weeks before Christmas, Contract is a fantastic way to support the arts in Singapore with a unique pre-holiday event," says THC in a press release. "In a year where live theatre has been wrecked by the pandemic, here’s a way to gather in groups safely in the comfort of your own home."
The play will be performed at 8pm on December 10; 8pm and 10.30pm on December 11; and 5pm, 8pm, and 10.30pm on Saturday. Tickets are $20, which includes access to the online play and a virtual goodie bag. Funds raised from the show will go towards building THC's 2021 season.
