HERE & NOW Festival is back! Young theatre-makers take over the Basement in a mid-winter celebration!


By Sherry Zhang and Nuanzhi Zheng
Directed by Nathan Joe
Designed by Daniel Williams, Minsoh Rachel Choi, Tim Jansen, Kenji Iwamitsu-Holdaway

An identity crisis, final year exams and a boy called Timothée Chalamet is just the beginning!

Poppy Young, high school it-girl, struggles to adapt to her new outsider status, meanwhile usually quiet Qiu Ju Yang navigates being vulnerable in love and at home. What do these two opposites have in common? Turns out its more than just their names…

A heart-warming Gen Z story celebrating truth and identity that will have you cackling, cringing and a little choked up too.

Told in Mandarin, Shanghainese and English.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes before show start time. Latecomers admitted into the theatre at Basement's discretion – no refunds will be given.

Contains occasional use of strong language. Recommended for ages 14+
