••••••••••

The winter of death numbs a lover’s pain,

The autumn of dreams lies awake in vain,

The summer of life sings its passing song,

And spring comes again… with courage to hope, and go on.

 

“If there are seasons I would see snow, but not around here…”

After the painful demise of his girlfriend Jing, Ah Le flies to New York to breathe life into his fading dream of writing music. There he meets and befriends Ah Qiang, a fellow dream hunter from Singapore, who helps him settle right in. It is a difficult period of transition, but Ah Le soon gets a job working at a restaurant.

 

While on the job he encounters Rose, a struggling actress who fits right in with the boys and a beautiful friendship of battered dreams and bruised lives is born. The winds of fate stir and their lives tumble on. An air of romance lingers wistfully, but does an old love really die?

 

“There are no seasons here, but there is always love…”

Inspired by the popular hits of songwriting sensation Liang Wern Fook, If There’re Seasons… takes us on a journey to find meaning at life’s uncertain crossroads. Where a group of young friends learn that some things are worth holding on to, no matter what lies ahead.

 

Written by award-winning Hong Kong playwright Raymond To, who penned the 2005 hit movie Perhaps Love starring Jacky Cheung, If There’re Seasons… is a breathtaking musical about love beyond death, friendships that go the distance, and dreams that find their way home.

 

The Theatre Practice, who brought you the magnificent stage spectacle Lao Jiu: The Musical and the modern day rendering of Cao Yu’s famous classic Thunderstorm, is back again to excite your senses and warm your hearts in this epic of love and courage!

 

If There’re Seasons…, starring George Chan, Sebastian Tan, Joanna Dong, Magdalene See, Zheng Zhan Lun, Johnny Ng, and Goh Guat Kian is the World Premiere that you don’t want to miss this year!

 

Come savour the seasons of life this August at the Drama Centre!

Art originates from life. Theatre is like a mirror that reflects the people and happenings in life from a different perspective, encouraging us to look within ourselves and to observe the ways of others.
