A Reading of 3 Works by Singaporean Playwrights

From a family reunion to a broken heart to road rage, come and hear the reading of three perspectives from these playwrights - Damon Chua, Huzir Sulaiman and Haresh Sharma.  A talk-back session will follow after the readings.

  • A Book By Its Cover (by Damon Chua) is a hilarious yet pointed glimpse into two lives becoming intertwined, set against a world where it is no longer quite clear what it means to be Chinese.
  • The Weight of Silk on Skin (by Huzir Sulaiman) explores the politically incorrect subject matter of the upper-crust Singaporean and his wealth and privilege.
  • Poor Thing (written by Haresh Sharma) grapples with the unique issue of road rage and what drives it in Singapore.
