2GETHER AS 1 In Love
10 different couples driving on the same highway North Diversion Road. Every pair dealing with marriage, love, and betrayal with very different approaches. This award-winning play, by Filipino playwright Tony Perez, will be performed by an all-SMU ensemble. Our version allows for audience interactivity, where you can choose from and switch among multi-camera angles as you close in on the dialogue and emotions between characters. Directed by celebrated theatre maker, Tan Shou Chen.
Welcome to On North Diversion Road, an immersive theatre experience that allows you to be the camera director for the play you are about to view. Each camera angle gives you a different perspective - literally and emotionally - as you watch 10 couples address infidelity and question the concept of being together over the course of a highway drive.

2GETHER AS 1 SUPPORTS
THE SMU RESILIENCE FUND
The programmes you have watched are a labour of love from over 300 youths over the last 8 months. They have come 2GETHER AS 1 to pursue their common passion in the arts, while juggling the commitments from other aspects of their lives. For some students, this includes shouldering financial difficulties during the pandemic. You can help ease their load by donating generously to SMU Resilience Fund, a university-wide effort established in 2020 to provide timely and much-needed relief for SMU students. We look forward to receiving your support during this festive season.
