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.
