Recalling Mother  by Checkpoint Theatre

Two women tell stories about two other women – their mothers – and the complexities of living with (and not living with) them. One mother is Cantonese-speaking and impetuous; the other speaks Malay and is quietly stubborn. Both are smart, sharp and strong, and they are wonderful cooks.

Poignant, moving and funny, Recalling Mother  celebrates the joys and challenges of motherhood – and daughterhood. Written and performed in English, Malay and Cantonese by Claire Wong and Noorlinah Mohamed.

"Heartfelt performances and a tight script."
–The Straits Times
“Engaging and vivid... subtly layered with issues regarding language and communication.”
– Channel News Asia
