Textures 2019 : The Page on Stage – Samping

The Arts House

What started as a commissioned programme for last year’s Textures has now been expanded into a series of plays dramatised from Singapore literature. The series will feature three short stories from the Balik Kampung series (Math Paper Press) and is adapted and directed by three top award-winning television writer/directors lending their magic from the tube to the theatre!

Adapted from Cyril Wong’s short story The MistakeSamping takes us on a young Malay boy’s journey through bereavement, longing, persecution, and eventually the beginnings of becoming a man.
