Three Years in the Life and Death of Land (2023)

5 August 2023 – 13 August 2023 @ Singtel Waterfront Theatre, Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay


When Eric Lim returns home after studying abroad, he marries his long-time sweetheart and neighbour Shalini Mulchand. But a lot can happen in three years—especially when two families are united by love but divided by their pain.

First staged in 1994 as part of the Singapore Festival of Arts, Three Years in the Life and Death of Land is about the Lims, the Mulchands, a ghost, a cat and three mosquitoes—one big family, trying hard to be happy.
