Qing is struggling to deal with the aftermath of a relationship that ended after 20 years. E is negotiating the difficult position of sole-caregiving to a mother who does not fully accept her.

Both Qing and E identify as queer, and are in their fifties. On the cusp of old age, Qing and E are finding that they have another set of challenges to overcome as queer individuals.

When cloud catches colours is a verbatim theatre based on true accounts that highlights how the sense of safety changes for a queer person as they get older. With much of the queer discourse in Singapore largely focused on the youths, what lies ahead of someone who has lived most of their life in the margins?
