Ever wondered what it’s like to be a foreigner in a strange land?
With migrant talent being such a hot topic these days, why not diffuse some of the tension surrounding it by looking at it through lighthearted lenses? The Expat Wife tells the tale of Felicity Edwards-Scott who has abandoned her career back home to follow her husband when he gets relocated to Singapore. With a young family in tow, watch how they adapt to their new life as expatriates, but not without some trials and tribulations along the way.
Universal issues like cultural alienation, acclimatization, social acceptance and others reign supreme as Felicity and her husband try to carve a niche out in the new society they find themselves in. When expat life starts to take its toll on their marriage, they find themselves having to re-navigate inner boundaries of what used to seem familiar.
Young or old, foreign or local – The Expat Wife relates to all as no matter our culture, race or upbringing, we’re all essentially human at the core.
The Expat Wife is on from May 6-21, at the UCC. Tickets are $54-65 and are sold through Sistic.
