Writers’ Lab goes to the Community            


TheatreWorks Writers’ Lab goes to the South East District: A Community Project
This community project, in partnership with the South East Community Development Council (CDC), is a series of dramatised readings held at definitive locations in the South East District. This initiative hopes to create a theatrical experience for the community by bringing new writings from the Writers’ Lab to the community.
 
This series showcases two plays: Someday, Samsara by Bryan Tan and Love Gravy by Peggy Ferroa. Both works were developed in the Writers’ Lab by dramaturg Robin Loon.

SOMEDAY, SAMSARA
Written by Bryan Tan
Directed by Robin Loon
Performed by Anjana Srinivasan

Sandy has been sent to hell but what greets her are the Ten Courts of HELL. As she travels deeper into hell, she comes face-to-face with the mythological Niu-tou (Bull) and Ma-mian (Stead) guardians of hell, her loves, her hates and her past. This monologue is a piercing yet humorous look at life, death and going to court.

LOVE GRAVY
Written by Peggy Ferroa
Directed by Robin Loon
Performed by Serene Chen

Three generations: Two mothers, Two daughters, and one pot of braised pork. This monologue is a light-hearted and ingenuous look at the generation gap and the struggles for independence and continuity. The story revolves around a family recipe for braised pork: mothers and daughters doing their best to do right by each other and by themselves.
