If home is where the heart is,
what do you do when your heart says,
"Actually... Is it ok if I don't want to go home?"

Kuala Lumpur-born, Singapore-based Ng Mun Poh has spent the last 18 years of her life travelling between her two "homes''. As she should.

In a monodrama equal parts heartfelt and humorous, almost home dramatises the struggle of finding her place in a home where nothing, and yet so much has changed.

A first version of the work, Daughter, was received with rave reviews as part of Practice's It's Not About The Numbers series in September 2021. It has since been brilliantly reimagined for a black box stage in collaboration with director Yeo Lyle and dramaturg Neo Hai Bin.
