Like all expecting parents, Kurt and Martha want the best for their baby. But they are working class and a baby is costly. What happens when an innocent side job spirals out of control? How far will the new parents go to create their ideal home?

Directed by Yale-NUS Lecturer of Theatre Jonathan Vandenberg (Classic Stage Company's Oresteia, Mabou Mines' The Kingdom) and featuring Ethel Yap (Four Horse Road, Urinetown: The Musical) and Te Hao Boon (Cost of Caring, The Hawker), with design by Elizabeth Mak (project Salome, The Public's The Chinese Lady) and Johanna Pan (Snow in Midsummer, Recalling Mother), The Nest is a haunting parable on the tangled relationship between materialism, obedience, and ecological devastation. Written in 1974 Bavaria and locally set, this timeless play eerily resonates with the struggles of a modern family in Singapore.
