You’ve heard the news: Phase 3 (Heightened Alert) is here, and we can finally dine in again! But that doesn’t mean we should let our guard down, though — restrictions are still in place. To spice up your weekend, we’ve picked a bunch of exciting things you can do either online or offline. This week, watch a heartrending play; enjoy a unique high tea experience; and more.

WATCH | Lungs

Brace yourselves for an emotional rollercoaster with Singapore Repertory Theatre’s latest show. Lungs is an intimate portrait of an everyday couple struggling to make responsible decisions amidst life’s uncertainties. When faced with the prospect of starting a family in a world filled with social inequality, political unrest and environmental disaster, how should one react? Directed by Daniel Jenkins and written by renowned playwright Duncan Macmillan, this heart-warming love story is certainly one to remember.
