In Singapore for the first time, the National Theatre stages its acclaimed production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

Fifteen-year-old Christopher Boone has an extraordinary brain, is exceptional at math, but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road. He detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. When Christopher falls under suspicion for killing his neighbour’s dog, his detective work to identify the true culprit takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.

Where: Esplanade Theatres
Entry: S$28-138

A Good Death follows Dr Leong, a palliative care doctor, as she journeys with her patients through their final days. As they open up to her about their hopes and fears, her own family begins to argue over what is best for their ageing parents. 

Faced with an increasingly blurred line between her professional and personal life, Dr Leong finds herself asking: What truly makes life worth living? What is a good and dignified death? And on whose terms? 

Poignant and insightful, A Good Death is a tender meditation on what it means to lean on one another, even on those you least expect.

When: Mar 31-Apr 1
Where: Esplanade Theatre Studio
Entry: S$35
