KUSU Island (2020)

Coming Soon

Black Box Drama Centre

9 - 19 July 2020

This July, The Fool Theatre continues to celebrate the Singapore Story with KUSU Island – a brand new Chinese musical adaptation of the legends of the off-shore island south of Singapore, riding on the local myths surrounding the island. The story revolves around the theme of motherly love, and questions human’s versus animal’s primal instincts of protecting our surroundings and loved ones and the worthiness of sacrifices that may result from them.

From the positive reviews and reception of Rock Guardians of the Sea, The Fool Theatre is more encouraged to let the rich heritage of Singapore live on in our future generations through retelling local legends which aren’t widely shared amongst the average Singaporean.

TFT continues in our efforts in showing promising, young talents, with more original songs and music to lead our audience into the mythical world of the story.

Join us at the Drama Centre Black Box, from 9 to 19 July 2020.

Synopsis

Exactly 60 days ago, sea turtle Rose laid 100 eggs by the beach. Now, all of them, except the 100th egg, hatch into baby turtles and make their way, slowly but surely, back into the sea. While waiting for her last baby to come out of its shell, both mother turtle and egg are attacked by a kettle of vultures. Two fishermen appear just in the nick of time to chase away the predators, and take the turtle egg along with them as they set sail in their fishing boat. Driven by her newly-developed motherly instinct, Rose chases after the fishermen to retrieve her baby egg. Facing a series of challenging events, she convinces herself to protect the fishermen just like their mother would, in order to protect her baby egg. While the fishermen remain oblivious to her efforts to protect them, Rose comes to realise something important.
