In Singapore, miscarriages can happen in up to 25 percent of pregnancies. Yet, there is still a lot of silence surrounding the painful topic of pregnancy loss.
Here to break the silence and offer personal stories about this heartbreaking subject is The Haque Collective, with their newest play, Until Death.
Loosely inspired by films such as Marriage Story, Pieces of a Woman and Kramer vs. Kramer, Until Death aims to comfort, and explore the grief that comes with a miscarriage.
Audiences won’t just witness a couple navigating the aftermath of a life-altering event, but also understand how expectant couples are saddled with mental health struggles, emotional baggage, shame and isolation when dealing with the death of an infant.
Says director Kamil Haque: “To me, this play is about giving a voice to the voiceless. With this play, we have the opportunity to comfort the disturb. Isn’t it time we begin normalising the conversation about miscarriages?”
Taking place from Nov 11-14 at the Stamford Arts Centre, Until Death tickets are priced at $45 each (inclusive of a virtual goodie bag) and can be purchased here.
