Play Safe (2007) saw The Necessary Stage partnering with the Health Promotion Board to create and tour a forum theatre performance on safe sex. We also worked with KK Women’s & Children’s Hospital for a commission entitled When the Bough Breaks, focusing on post-natal depression.

Commissioned by the Alzheimer's Disease Association, Don't Forget to Remember Me (2009) deals with the trials and tribulations of people with dementia and their struggles to come to terms with their illness.


Commissioned school and community tours were also organised for The Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports. Sweet Dreams (2011) broached the topic of child abuse and was targeted at primary school students.
