    “If you keep going like this you will be nothing! A nobody! Son, what are you going to do with your future?!” - Mum
    … I guess this project is my answer.
    Unflinchingly honest, Letters Home is a new autobiographical show from Renegade Productions’ Joe Lui.
    Director, writer and designer Joe Lui is well known to Perth audiences, but they’ve never seen him like this. Taking to the stage for the first time in his professional career, Letters Home looks at the period in Joe’s life where he chose not to return to his native Singapore to take up military service, making him a criminal in the eyes of his parents and the Singaporean state.
    Drawing on archival footage of his time as a child actor as well as the unsent letters he wrote to his parents, Letters Home will be lush theatrical production looking at youth, power and freedom.

    “I can’t imagine any of the hundreds of people who’ve been amazed and intrigued by Joe Lui over the years will want to miss it; for those who haven’t, you should take the opportunity to meet a quite remarkable person.” The West Australian
    “Poignant, funny, disturbingly honest and self-aware monologue brings years of theatrical immersion to a debut performance.” ArtsHub
    “Letters Home is an unflinchingly honest work, laying bare Lui’s relationship with his parents, himself and the culture he left behind.” theaureview.com

    Saltwater invites you into an evening of storytelling, conversations, and food.
    In a quick turnaround, Jamie finds herself married and migrated. To make things work, she channels the women in her life to find the answers.
    A convivial affair, Saltwater is a poignant account of home as she grapples with the gravity of being a wife 6060km away.
    Sit with strangers at her dinner table, participate in the preparation of a meal, and travel through memories of Singapore, childhood, and lessons learnt as Jamie remembers her mother, revealing the inner world of a woman as she responds to loss, grief, love and commitment.
