The gods and their descendants live among us, but they have lost all their powers in a modern world were people no longer pray or believe. Our story follows a group of teenage descendants as they juggle deity school with the trials and tribulations of growing up. When a massive blackout hits, and all hell breaks loose, these misfits must find a way to regain their powers, band together and save the day.
Bringing together acclaimed playwright Wu Xi and theatre director Alvin Chiam, this action-packed show transports you to a fantastical world where myth and reality collide. With its energetic cast, hilarious script, ImmortalX is a poignant and meaningful tale about growing up and finding one’s identity.
A reworked version of ImmortalX was restaged in 2018 as part of M1 Patch!.

“The play fares well with many inspired performances from a cast that exhibits great chemistry as a team, and a fun storyline which takes the audience into a fantastical world. While the start is shaky, it does get progressively better. As the teenagers in the play grow up through trials and tribulations, so does the play itself. You then get an ending that is poignant and meaningful, leaving you with a happy glow in your heart.”
