NUS Theatre Studies Presents ‘Petty People’

At Black Box Theatre

NUS Theatre Studies is presenting our play production:


29 – 31 March, 8pm
Yale NUS, Blackbox


“Someday I wish upon a chewed-up tennis ball

And wake up with my tail in my mouth

Where troubles melt like your Samsung phones

High above your tallest skyscraper

That’s where you’ll find me.”


A dog’s body has been found in Singapore. 

It’s been 24-hours, but its tail continues wagging relentlessly, thump-thump-thumping on the vet’s operation table.

In the face of this strange phenomenon, everybody has an opinion. 

With every beat of flesh against metal, ripples are sent through the lives of those who lay claim to the dog.

 Devised by the NUS Theatre Studies graduating company of 2017 and directed by Thong Pei Qin, “Petty People” is an original play about looking, not seeing.

We warmly invite you to experience this uncanny, bold and irreverent take on having the world today as we know it, go to the dogs.
