19 – 21 April 2024

Do you still remember the nights upon the stars? Or that unspoken “puppy love” that does not fade with time? How about the times reminiscing through the mischievous and fearless days, where we soar for our dreams? 
During the young and restless days of Chen Fu Liang, love was everything. The 3 ladies, who occupied a special spot in his heart, left unforgettable footprints in his life. Together with his classmates, army buddies, a Chinese aristocrat, friends from different cultural backgrounds, their self-exile or exile by the social environment creates a solemn and respectable pursuit of their opportunities. 

Adapted from Singapore’s award-winning novelist Chia Joo Ming Exile or Pursuit, the literacy work has been part of the O-level Literature in Chinese syllabus since 2019.
Despite the impact of Covid-19 epidemic when it was first staged in 2021, it has attracted over 1,200 secondary school students to watch the online performance. This year, InArts Collective is collaborating once again with the Ministry of Education (MOE) and Committee to Promote Chinese Language Learning (CPCLL) to bring Exile or Pursuit 2024 back on stage! 

Alongside script editor Neo Hai Bin and veteran theatre director Jalyn Han, the musical drama Exile or Pursuit 2024 will make a comeback with a super lineup and elite team! Presenting the simple times and transformation of generations through various artistic conceptions and music of the old times, this musical drama Exile or Pursuit 2024 will trace back the fond memories of our growing up years.

We sincerely invite you, your old friends and your loved ones, to join us in the theatre of modern literature, history, and the coming of age! Relive yesterday’s dream that travelled through time and space!

We are exiled by the times, but also pursuing the times!
