Day 6 - The Twenty-Something Theatre Festival 2016!

The second weekend of The Twenty-Something Theatre Festival 2016 features a different 3 set of new plays written by another 3 of our short-listed Fresh! Playwrights. These plays were selected by our panel of veteran theatre makers in Singapore:

Chong Tze Chien, Company Director, The Finger Players; Natalie Hennedige, Artistic Director, Cake Theatrical Productions; Lee Mun Wai, Dancer & Choreographer
; and Haresh Sharma, Resident Playwright, The Necessary Stage.

The Fresh! Plays for the second weekend will be staged from 16 - 19 June 2016 at 5.00pm, 7.00pm and 9.00pm respectively, one after the other, at The Goodman Arts Centre Multi-Purpose Room #03-11, Block B.

In addition to our Fresh! Plays, The Twenty-Something Theatre Festival will also feature two specially invited 20-something playwrights who are already making a name for themselves in the theatre scene in our Headliner! category. This year, Joel Tan and Irfan Kasban will be presenting new full length scripts in full productions at The Goodman Centre Black Box. Click here to read more about, and buy tickets for Irfan's play Trees, A Crowd (9 - 12 June 2016) and here for Joel's play Café (16 - 19 June 2016).

The 3 Fresh! Plays for our second weekend are:

Curry Puff by Kimberly Arriola (5.00pm)

Curry Puff, is a verbatim play from the perspective of Robiah Lia Caniago, a 40 year old Indonesian woman who was convicted of operating an unlicensed curry puff factory, in her two room HDB flat. The incident drew much attention from the media as well as the general public. Many sporting opposing views in regards to the law’s failure to take her circumstances into account. Yet through it all, there was one voice which went unheard, the voice of Robiah’s. This is her side of the story.

Balek Kampung by David Khoo (7.00pm)

A hundred years in the future, Singapore is run by an artificial intelligence composed of the preserved consciousness and memories of its greatest leaders and citizens. A regular broadcast of Balek Kampung, Symphonic 924’s evening programme, takes a headfirst plunge into the surreal end of the pool after being shoved off the diving board of humdrumness by a spiritual awakening within the artificial intelligence. As improbable as it sounds, hilarity ensues.

Tuition by Euginia Tan (9.00pm)

Jonathan, a precocious, lonely boy, is having tuition with Miss Lee, a teacher seemingly eager to please.
