If you could spend eternity with just one precious memory, what would it be?
Adapted from Hirokazu Koreeda's acclaimed film, After Life takes us into a bureaucratic waiting room between life and death, where a diverse group of newly deceased strangers grapple with an extraordinary choice: selecting their most cherished memory to carry with them for eternity.
Guided by enigmatic officials, these characters embark on a soul-searching journey through their past lives to choose their forever memory. With grace, sensitivity, and humour, exploring themes of love, regret and hopefulness, After Life is a celebration of theatre, and a moving meditation on the way we view our lives, and what it means to live, to die, and the memories we make along the way.
By arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
"A compelling vision of eternity" – The Times
"A great idea, charmingly done... its best parts are pure theatre" – The Guardian
"Miraculous... an absolutely superb play... I was incredibly moved by it... a properly transcendent piece of theatre" – TimeOut

Audio Described (AD):
An Audio Described performance is for patrons who are Blind or Vision Impaired, who require the theatre performance to be described live by a trained Audio Describer. The performance is verbally described and transmitted to the audience members through their own mobile phone device with earphones.
Creative Captioned (CC):
Creative Captioned (CC) performances are designed to cater to patrons who are Deaf / Hard of Hearing. In a CC performance, there will be text projected on or near the stage that transcribes all auditory elements of the show into written English (speech, music, sound cues, etc). Trained captioners will operate their captions live. Colour contrast, placement, and size of the caption text will be considered throughout the process. Advised by our patrons and Venue team, seating for audience members will be allocated to provide an optimal view of the captions during the performance, and the stage itself.
Relaxed Performance (RP):
A Relaxed Performance (RP) is designed to allow patrons a more ‘relaxed’ theatre environment. Patrons who may benefit from this performance include those on the Autistic spectrum, living with Dementia and patrons with diverse learning and communication needs.
Singapore Sign Language Interpreted Performance (SgSL):
Sign Language Interpreted performances are designed to cater to patrons who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing. In a signed performance, there will be a trained interpreter who will be placed in a visible position on or near the stage. The interpreter will sign all auditory elements of the show using Singapore Sign Language. Advised by The Singapore Association of the Deaf, seating is allocated for each SgSL performance to provide an optimal view to both the show and the interpreter.
