VOICES CLEAR AND TRUE: NEW SINGAPORE PLAYS VOLUME 1
Edited by Huzir Sulaiman, Lucas Ho & Laremy Lee
published by Checkpoint Theatre
This is the first volume in a series of play collections published by Checkpoint Theatre that showcase the exciting work of a new generation of Singapore playwrights. Published as part of Checkpoint Theatre’s 10th anniversary celebrations, these plays are evidence of the burgeoning renaissance in Singapore playwriting.
This collection of eight critically-acclaimed plays features the work of up-and-coming playwrights Christine Chong, Kenneth Chong, Lucas Ho, Dan Koh, Cheryl Lee, Laremy Lee, Faith Ng and Shiv Tandan. All the plays were written under the mentorship of Huzir Sulaiman and have been produced by Singapore theatre companies. The collection includes wo(men) by Faith Ng and The Good, the Bad and the Sholay by Shiv Tandan, which were both nominated for Best Original Script at the Straits Times Life! Theatre Awards in 2011 and 2012 respectively.
The plays are by turns lyrical and hilarious, and are marked by their intellectual rigour, emotional honesty, and refined technique. Checkpoint Theatre is committed to nurturing the next generation of Singapore theatre practitioners, and these plays serve both as a record of powerful new work and as a valuable resource for students and makers of theatre everywhere.
