M1 Peer Pleasure is a youth theatre festival with a social conscience. This year, we are taking a closer look at how people with disabilities live in Singapore. Where are their voices and stories in our everyday? In a country that prizes efficiency, productivity and material success, can people with disabilities have a place in our economy, schools and community?

Unable to stage live performances as usual at the Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay, because of the Coronavirus pandemic, we will be presenting the festival online from 4 - 16 August; with majority of the programmes offered for free!

What is attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), who has it?

How does a family raise a teenager with ADHD? How does this condition affect the lives of everybody living under one roof?

By drawing on first-hand accounts of parents and siblings of people with ADHD, this play revolves around the complex and often difficult relationships between family members, where the line between taking care of yourself and loving your family - even when they are difficult to love - is often blurred or breached.
