Paul Rae and Kaylene Tan came into the Singapore theatre scene in the late '90s with their cool detached style of writing that bristled with an urban vibe. Balance was a departure from their earlier works and precursor to their later string of plays the duet series which employed a deceptively simple confessional writing style that moved with honesty and subtlety.

In Balance, an estranged couple gives themselves a night to get their relationship back on track. As they relive their domestic routines and live out their violent fantasies, they learn that the only way to save what they have is to strike a balance between pretending and being real.

Duets explores life and love to the power of two. Interspersed with the sounds and stories of some of pop’s most enduring duets, vignettes within the play chart the ups and downs of two people making a life together.
