From 1932 to 2147: Three Acts and Three Dishes to Celebrate the Singapore Story
At the kitchen helm is passionate Singaporean Executive Sous Chef Kevin Liew. In close collaboration with Skinned Knee productions, Chef Liew has thoughtfully conceptualised a three-course menu that perfectly accompanies the compelling storyline.

The theatrical dining experience first transports the audience back to the 1930s, where the plot begins. As diners tuck into the first course of the evening, the Ginger Chicken, they will be introduced to Samsui Woman Mei Chun and her forbidden love story with the young and suave errand-boy Ah Long. At this point, there is no turning back for the young couple madly in love.

Fast forward to modern Singapore, the daughter of the Samsui Woman is found reminiscing about her mother’s glory days as a Chinese immigrant. Mercedes Tan, a young social media influencer, great grandchild of the Samsui Woman, is forced to make a tough decision. The main course will offer up a modern take on Peranakan delights with a choice of Rendang of Beef Short Rib or Curry Crusted Red Snapper Loin.

In the third and final act, we gaze in the crystal ball of Singapore and envision what Singapore will look like in 99 years from now. Does technology take an opposing stronghold on our lives? Are we happier or worse off? The audience will indulge in a decadent yet futuristic dessert titled 66% Valrhona Chocolate, while encouraged to share in the vision of Singapore in 2147.
