The wee Question Mark and the Nameless – A Family Musical
If one doesn’t have a name, how do we address him? How do we recognise him if he has changed his appearance? How do we tell the police if he went missing?
The wee Question Mark and the Nameless is the second instalment in The wee Question Mark series, which won Best Production for the Young at The Straits Times Life Theatre Awards 2016. Reuniting Huang Suhuai (Playwright), Kuo Jian Hong (Director), Xiaohan (Lyrics) and Julian Wong (Composer), this engaging musical adventure combines wacky storytelling with catchy songs and the series’ signature light touch, as they introduce children to universal topics such as labelling and stereotypes.
The wee Question Mark and the Nameless was nominated for Best Production for the Young at The Straits Times Life! Theatre Awards 2018.
