Four Horse Road
Four Horse Road remains true to the Practice spirit of good play, taking a bigger, bolder look at identity and our sense of belonging. Inspired by real historical events that once took place on Waterloo Street, Four Horse Road peels away the layers of one of Singapore’s oldest streets to uncover decades of buried stories and forgotten people. Conceptualised by The Theatre Practice’s Artistic Director Kuo Jian Hong and playwright Jonathan Lim, Four Horse Road is an intimate experience on an epic scale.
2 Centuries. 10 Locations. 3 Heritage Buildings. 50 artists. 1 unique theatrical adventure. This is an awe-inspiring theatrical event you need to be part of.
