POOP!

20 – 22 Oct 2017, various timings
Victoria Theatre

The Finger Players restages Chong Tze Chien’s reflective play on death and bereavement.  The synopsis is as follows: A father commits suicide, his wife grieves, his mother laughs, because death is merely a joke, while his 8-year-old daughter wonders, “When is life worth living; when is death worth celebrating?” As cryptic as this sounds, Poop! is considered one of The Finger Players’ best work.
