Share your observations about ageing in Singapore, and find out more about our seniors' thoughts on this and everything else in Singapore!
The performance will be followed up with a short Question & Answer session with members of the cast including Catherine Sng, where they will share about their experiences as senior actors in the production.

About Pioneer (Girls) Generation

A group of seniors living in an upscale retirement home have something to say about everything, and are not afraid to voice their thoughts. Cheeky, rambunctious and vivacious, these sassy women are proud to call themselves Pioneers, and want all the benefits that come with the title. Pioneer (Girls) Generation by The Necessary Stage is a no-holds-barred comedy with sharp and critical observations about ageing and everything else in Singapore. 

If you thought you knew all about growing old in Singapore, think again.
