A despot has come to power. The society is listless, submissive and scared.

But beneath every violation of civil autonomy, there are humans, behind every resistance to power, there are individuals. And these people are not different to us but identical, they are not heroic or remarkable, but ordinary.

Through the lives of ornithologists, bureaucrats, soldiers and tour guides, No Particular Order charts the fall, rise and continuation of a single society, asking the same repeated question “Is it empathy, or power, that endures?”

No Particular Order is the startling debut play from 503Five alumnus Joel Tan and was shortlisted in the 2018 Theatre503 International Playwriting Award.



“One thing that stuck out was the undercurrent of birds. The ceiling was shrouded in fabric and filled with feathers, these feathers fell to the ground as they jumped scenes and were symbols of plants, but also seemingly people – moving around, unchanging, always present.” – SW Londoner
