The Teenage Textbook, Art Studio, Malay Sketches and Karang Guni Boy—these are just some of the many SingLit titles that have been successfully adapted into theatrical stagings.
What are some of the motivations behind these adaptations? What are some of the processes and techniques involved in bringing the page to the stage? How can you get started on your adaptation journey?
Hear from three Singaporean playwrights Alfian Sa’at, Jean Tay and Neo Hai Bin at the Page-To-Stage: Adapting Sing Lit to Singapore Theatre panel sharing on 24 November 2021, 7.30pm! Facilitated by writer and poet Charlene Shepherdson, the speakers will discuss their approaches and experiences in creating plays inspired by and adapted from local literature.
And if you're interested to learn about how to adapt a piece of short fiction or be inspired by history, and want to breathe new life into old stories onstage, sign up for the upcoming Page-To-Stage workshops presented by Alfian Sa'at and Jean Tay respectively.
This panel is presented in collaboration with Centre 42.
