Presented in Mandarin, 'December Rains 雨季' is an elegiac love story that unfolds in the turbulent 1950s, when anti-colonial sentiments and Maoist fervour among Chinese school students are running high. Two students from vastly-different backgrounds; Chen Li Qing and Zhou Ying Xiong, fall in love. Their relationship is beset by many challenges, including social unrest at the time and parental objection.
At a pivotal moment, Li Qing’s good friend and admirer Zhang Ming Li holds on to a letter entrusted to him from her, to pass to Ying Xiong. This undelivered message leads to the inevitable separation of Li Qing and Ying Xiong, and subsequently brings sorrow, regret and pain to all three characters.
Like the metaphor of rain which falls relentlessly on the pair of star-crossed lovers and Ming Li, December Rains 雨季continues into the 1980s, when their paths cross once again and they come face to face with unresolved issues. Will the rain ever let up or stop?
Directed by Goh Boon Teck, the musical stars Andie Chen, Chriz Tong, Sugie Phua, Ann Lek, Timothy Wan and Darren Guo
