It’s International Friendship Day at MPSS but friendship seems to be the last thing on the students’ minds.

While the foreign students Adi, Anton and Liqin are questioning what to showcase at their booths and why there isn’t one for the local students, the Drama Club boys are unhappy about them not putting any effort towards the much-anticipated Singapore Youth Festival (SYF).

Meanwhile, Carys is facing pressure at home for losing her spot as the school’s top Maths student.

Will she lose her top spot to an international scholar?

Will the Drama Club boys get the foreigners to join in the chorus?

Will Adi get the booth of his choice?

Written by Cultural Medallion recipient Haresh Sharma and TNS' Associate Artist Lim Shien Hian, International Friendship Day promises an invigorating and engaging interactive theatre experience for youths to explore and understand cross-cultural differences.

International Friendship Day was first commissioned by Singapore Kindness Movement in 2015 and was restaged as part of Peer Pleasure 2016 and as an online interactive experience under Esplanade’s Feed Your Imagination 2021.

It is supported by the National Arts Council as part of the NAC School Arts Excursion Programme.
