Textures: The Page on Stage - A Performance of Words from the stories of Baratham, Cheong, Jeyaretnam and Tay

Two actors perform stories by some of Singapore’s most popular writers from the 1990s. A teacher turned life coach finds a brief but powerful connection with a colleague during a period of life left increasingly desolate by his own success; an errant relative returns, to the delight and consternation of his idolising but straight-laced cousin; two people meet, fall in love, and co-write their secret romance; a man faces the bewildering achievement of growing old. These finely-sketched characters are from some of the most memorable stories by four unforgettable Singaporean writers – Gopal Baratham, Colin Cheong, Philip Jeyaretnam and Simon Tay – characters given new life as they move from the page to the stage.

Cast: Rebekah Sangeetha Dorai, Jun Vinh Teoh

This programme is part of Textures – a weekend with words.

Textures celebrates the power and beauty of words. It invites audiences to experience and appreciate how words give us the ability to express ourselves as well as give meaning to our lives and the world. With its profound ability to connect and unite, words breathe life into the vast breadth of human thought and feeling, whether spoken or written.

In this weekend of words, we also celebrate Singapore literature and the people who have contributed to it. From mastering the craft to those building a community of writers and readers, they are all part of weaving and strengthening the fabric of our literary landscape.
