Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea (2020)

6 November 2020 – 8 November 2020 @ SISTIC Live, Online


A grandmother is dying.
Her grandson is in New York and she’s in Singapore. He refuses to come home and she puts her foot down. She buys him a flat and he buys her a coffin.

A woman and a man are in love.
A third party buys a bed but gets nothing else. Three’s a crowd but no one wants to budge. Does love know no boundaries or is there just too much greed?

A criminal is on the loose.
His father is going berserk. His mother has bought breakfast but no one wants to eat. 

The Devil pays all three families a visit and a torrent of tears ensues.
The sea engulfs them and all must learn to float. 
Between the devil and the deep blue sea, someone has to make a choice and cope.
