2012 - Singapore
Singapore. Singapura. Temasek. When does a name begin? When does a country begin? TNS examiens present-day Singapore by bringing historical characters to life. Factual and fictional characters merge with real and imagined events to create a theatre that makes the impossible possible. Looking at the themes of Migration, Harmony and Identity, Singapore probes deeply into a counry's history and, along the way, the psyche of the people occupying it. Featuring a very politically-correct multi-racial cast, the play is seriously funny, bluntly cutting and deceitfully truthful.
