Catch This Uniquely S’porean Play By Tan Kheng Hua And Get A FREE UNIQLO Shopping Spree In Return

Uniqlo Theatre

UNIQLO is known for a lot of things: stylish-yet-affordable clothing, their three-storey Global Flagship Store at Orchard Central, and a tendency to scream in our faces every five minutes, to name a few.

But theatre? Well, that’s a new one.

Uniqlo Theatre

We’re not joking, though. To promote their upcoming Fall / Winter 2018 collection, the Japanese brand is staging a guided play titled Modest Travels, which tell four stories of Singaporeans and their experiences overseas.

This isn’t some rookie production, either — the play is produced by none other than Tan Kheng Hua, fresh off her role as Constance Wu’s mother in the Crazy Rich Asians movie.

The cast is also comprised of local theatre actors such as Zee Wong and Timothy Wang, and includes singer-songwriter Inch Chua as well.

The 1.5 hour play will be presented on the 21st (Friday) and 22nd (Saturday) of September at 18/20 Temenggong Road, and tickets are going for $30.

(Technically) Free

Okay, we’re aware that not everyone is willing to spend $30 to watch a play, but here’s where things get interesting.

After watching the show, you’ll be able to fully convert your ticket into UNIQLO store credit, which means that the performance is technically free if you were already planning to get some new threads.

This strategy seems to be working, with two of the three shows on Saturday already sold out.

A performance by Singapore’s theatre elite, something to do over the weekend AND a thinly-veiled excuse to buy more clothes? We’d say get your tickets sooner than later, because there’s really no reason not to go.

Venue: 18/20 Temenggong Road, Singapore 098772
Date: September 21 and 22nd
Time: 2:30pm – 3:30pm, 4:00pm – 5:30pm, 6:00pm – 7:30pm
Admission: $30
