Singapore Repertory Theatre

Hare & Tortoise

From 26 Oct 2022 | KC Arts Centre - Home Of SRT

A modern take on Aesop's Fable - The Hare and The Tortoise - a fun, fast-paced play about friendship

Harri and Tatta have a race to win. The only problem they have is each other.

Forced to travel the route together, speedy Harri and steady Tatta become instant frenemies who can’t agree on anything - Harri is desperate to go faster, but Tatta can’t and doesn’t want to keep up. A host of colourful characters along the way offer new challenges until a wrong turn finds the pair stuck above the road in a construction site unable to move in any direction at all.

Can they find common ground? Will they make it to the finish line? And does slow and steady really win the race?

This contemporary adaptation explores the notion of speed in a literal and metaphorical sense. In today’s winner-takes-all world, it’s never been more essential to be able to keep up. But what does it mean to be fast or slow, and how can we make space for everyone’s talents and abilities?

This new adaptation is aimed at children aged 3 upwards.
