Grandmother Tongue


Dear Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community,


W!LD RICE’S Grandmother Tongue

Written & directed by Thomas Lim

Starring Jalyn Han, Tan Shou Chen & Rei Poh



In Singapore where dialects have been losing relevance for generations, Grandmother Tongue traces a young man’s struggle to connect with his 84-year-old Teochew-speaking grandmother. He teaches her to use a mobile phone. He helps her buy her favourite brand of soya sauce. He visits her in hospital after a fall. Along the way, he begins to understand just what it means to spend many years not having to know the dialects and culture.


The funny and understanding play shows that the social costs of our mother-tongue language policy and the removal of dialects in today’s Singapore. In humorous and heartbreaking way, Grandmother Tongue explores how our identities are bound up with the current languages that we use and the dialects that we lose.


Date: Saturday, 14th October 2017
Time: 8.00 pm
Venue: SOTA Studio Theatre
Advisory 16 (some mature content and coarse language)


As part of W!LD RICE’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, the show on 14 October 2017, Saturday will be simultaneously interepreted in Singapore Sign Language (SgSL).
