Surviving Hope is an original theatre play inspired by real stories exploring notions of hope and mental wellness. The Playwright, Ivan Lim, uses his personal experiences and theatrical know-how to juxtapose elements required to express the deepest and most intricate dilemmas faced in broken relationships. The term 'Surviving Hope' paints a faint optimism in overcoming our greatest fears and struggles and highlights the importance of staying committed till the very end. The play is presented in a covert narrative, through the eyes of children and parents, bringing out the ironies of human behaviors and conflicting mental states.
Surviving Hope is a theatre piece scripted to shed more light on the current stigma made on mental challenges in Singapore. The project seeks to stir deeper conversations and public discourse over mental problems people faced and how it could be important for everyone to see a dim of hope in every one of our own struggles.
