Still Sailing

ABOUT THIS EVENT

A gambler, Joshua secretly drifts into the horizon, to a place far away from the shores of his debts and worries… Only to crash into the waves of a global pandemic and harsh reality.

Forced into his cabin for a 14 days quarantine – he was miserably cut off from the buzz of casino slot machines. He desperately shuffles through the cards life has dealt him, and realises that there is absolutely no way he could earn the huge sum of money he came here to win.

His getaway voyage de la vie sinks deeper into brooding reality… A dockless cruise stranded in the middle of nowhere – miles away from home, the only thing that is familiar left, is himself… until he met her – the curious brash girl next door who somehow in all the uncertain conundrum – is Still Sailing.

Zooming into the current global crisis on unsettling seas, Still Sailing is a torrential original English play that brings to surface the whirlpool of emotions erupting between two twentysomethings aboard uncharted waters, isolated separately in their cruise cabins – forced to face their own realities in a not-so-perfect time of introspection.

An original English script penned and directed by Toy Factory’s director-mentorship mentee, Andy Pang, Still Sailing broadly sheds light on the inner psyches of Singaporeans who face the turmoil of grappling addictions, toxic relationships, and desperate manipulations. The play showcases very real inner-thoughts of an addict, whilst balancing it with tongue-in-cheek dialogues between the unlikely pairing on a voyage.

Still Sailing features an intimate and dynamic cast, with just two actors; Marc Valentine who takes the lead as Joshua, a snobbish well-to-do compulsive gambler, whilst actress Tan Rui Shan takes on the boisterous role of Cindy, a scheming petite young lady who has more up her sleeves than just a deck of cards. At heart, Still Sailing anchors on the message of finding beauty, comfort, and solace within one’s brokenness.
