The performance will feature a brand new work and look

The Necessary Stage once held a production so provocative in nature, it caused some members of the audience to walk out on the show. And this November, the local theatre company wants to bring it back, to engage in discussions about religious intolerance, racism and other social issues that plague Singapore today.

So if you’re intrigued, perhaps you’ll want to mark your calendars for ________ Can Change (pronounced blank can change), which shows at the Esplanade Recital Studio from Nov 10-14. There, you’ll be able to catch three unapologetic plays which look into socially irresponsible behaviours.

Two short plays will be seen again in this re-staging, and that includes Homosexuals Can Change and Marxists Can Change. Getting swapped for a new piece is Singles Can Change, which will be replaced by Indians Can Change.

According to the show’s director Alvin Tan, Indians Can Change will significantly update the triple-bill, re-frame its intentions and facilitate discussions of issues.

But besides the content, audiences can also enjoy a refreshed look with new lighting and set designs, as well as costumes.

Tickets to ________ Can Change are available for purchase here.
