“The actors portrayed these characters with so much sensitivity and feeling that I had to remind myself a few times that these were just students, talented students, and not professional theatre performers. Truly inspiring to see such a sensitive topic in society treated with this much respect and understanding by everyone.”
— Mr Philipp Gan, Career Counselor at Taylor’s Uni
