Waiting For The Host

Waiting For The Host

Waiting For The Host is a timely and thought-provoking play specially created to be experienced online, with Pangdemonium boldly embracing the “new normal” by bringing you an exciting and extraordinary piece of virtual theatre in the midst of our enforced digital regime. 

2020. The worldwide pandemic has resulted in pandemonium, isolating millions and forcing the shutdown of everything from places of worship, to playgrounds, to plays.

In Singapore, we are cautiously transitioning from “circuit breaker” through Phases 1 and 2 of re-emerging into a grave new world.

Meanwhile, an unorthodox union of unusual suspects congregates online, on Zoom, on a mission…to stage a play!

As our virgin wannabe thespians rehearse in socially distanced cyber safety, things become unsafely anti-social. Dirty laundry is aired, sacred secrets are shared, and the drama unfolds into an unholy comedy of errors of Biblical proportions. Literally.

This play is told in two parts:

Part One – Waiting For The Host, in which our motley menagerie of misfits meets online for the first time to rehearse and perform their Passion Play, with devilishly delirious results…

Part Two – Still Waiting, where, having become a viral cult phenomenon, they decide to go the full monty as a bona fide theatre troupe, creating an original play about the Creation, with a little help from a surprise guest…

A play within a play within a pandemic, this hilarious, poignant, and ultimately inspiring production gives us all a much-needed touch of humanity within this surreality, where human touch has become a virtual unreality.
