 5. CUMSA Play 2015


As you would have heard, CUMSA Play is back! This year, Singapore is turning 50 year old and in the spirit of the nation’s 50th birthday celebration and also to share a story of the little things that remind us of home, CUMSA presents you the play titled “LOONG KEE SUPERMARKET”.


Ah Hui is the owner of a humble Asian supermarket nestled in the heart of the city of Cambridge. For two decades, Loong Kee Supermarket has been his pride and joy. For his many customers, it has become synonymous with a home away from home. It is here that the lives of Ah Hui and his friends and family unfold and intertwine endlessly, as old memories are shared and new stories are written. Yet, beneath Ah Hui’s deceptively peaceful day-to-day life at his supermarket lie troubles and ideals that seemingly no one can understand – or can they?

Join us on the 27th of February as we tell a story of a supermarket that has come to symbolise much more.

Event details are as follows:

Date: 27th February 2015 (Friday)

Time: 8pm

Venue: Corpus Christi McCrum Lecture Theatre

Tickets: £6 (single)/ £30 (bundle of six)

Sign up and book your tickets now at!

Please note that the offer of the bundle of six ends on the 13th February 2015, and tickets can sell out quickly, so remember to sign up early!
