Stories of 9 different people from Singapore society converge in a hawker centre on its last day before closing down after 43 years to make way for redevelopment. With the nation fast progressing, what will it leave behind?
After a sold out first staging at the Asian Youth Theatre Festival 2018, The Second Breakfast Company’s first ever immersive work, The Hawker, is back again – bigger and better! Indulge your inner kaypohness and eavesdrop into the different conversations of this not-so-typical theatrical experience.
Featuring Lighting Design and Sound Design by ST Life! Theatre Awards nominees Woo E-hui and Vick Low, The Hawker is definitely not to be missed!

For those unfamiliar with immersive theatre, it basically involves a production removing the stage and “immerse” audiences within the performance itself – offering a whole new perspective of the show. You’ve probably heard of NYC’s Sleep No More or Drunk Shakespeare. But it’s refreshing to see the concept tailored for the local audience – and judging by the turn out of the opening night, a clever move, too.
