A tiger lurks outside the building, a doctor attempts treatment using unorthodox methods ... and within the high walls of the neglected facility, a patient hatches an escape plan. ITI presents ASYLUM — an original work devised by acclaimed artists, playwright Jean Tay and director Oliver Chong, and 12 graduating actor-students from seven countries.

A play that disturbs, provokes and haunts you, ASYLUM is inspired by the long-forgotten histories of Singapore's old quarantine sites.
