Singapore Repertory Theatre

The Almighty Sometimes

8 to 26 Nov 2022 | KC Arts Centre – Home of SRT

A heartfelt family drama about love, life and letting go, no matter what the consequences may be.

Anna has been on medication for so long she can't remember who she is without it. All she knows is that once, as a little girl, she was a prodigious writing talent, in possession of a thrilling imagination.

Now twenty-one, Anna wants to rediscover the talent and passions she believes were interrupted. She wants to know what life would be like without pills and prescriptions, but as Anna tries to find out who she really is, her mother, remains determined to protect her – but Anna’s treatment is no longer her decision.

Kendall Feaver's multi-award-winning play The Almighty Sometimes is a heartfelt family drama about loving someone with a mental illness. An intelligent and honest take on the difficult choices parents make in a child’s best interests, and what happens when you no longer have a say.

Brilliantly written, The Almighty Sometimes is an unflinching, exhilarating ride, filled with humour, pain and a little bit of magic.

Disclaimer: This play contains theatrical depictions of mental illness and associated behaviour which may be triggering for some people.


“A funny, heartbreaking, acutely alive play” – ★★★★ The Guardian

“This fine, ferocious play about mental illness and how we treat it, is  sharply observed, drily funny and compassionate, as well as alert to the cruelty we often inflict on those we love most” - ★★★★ The Times
