Local playwright Joel Tan’s latest work is a sensitive meditation on growing up and growing old. The Way We Go follows former principal of the fictional Convent of Our Lady of Lourdes, Agatha Mao as she meets and experiences the greatest loves of her life just when she thought it was too late. Sprawling over 12 years, this tender story of love and friendship between outsiders also brings into relief the fraught relationship of former students Lee and Gillian, who come to ask the same questions as their elders: What are the costs of love? Why do people need each other? What’s at stake when we reach out? Written with wit and affection, The Way We Go explores the simplicities and complexities of friendship, love and life.
