It’s a wrap! Last Saturday, we successfully presented a dramatised reading of three new scripts by Isaac Lim, Tan Mae Shen, and Beverly Wee. We would like to thank everyone who came down to show your support and took part in the discussions!
While this may be the end of the Writing From The Heart Programme for the 2015 batch, it is certainly not the end of the writing journey for the three playwrights. We hope the readings and feedback from audiences would help in the development and refinement of their scripts.
We caught up with some of the audience members after the readings to find out more about their thoughts.
Go Home by Isaac Lim
“Yes, I related to the reading. I felt that sometimes a father-son relationship is very mysterious, silent. That same silence is what makes the play a great one. =)” – Vishnu, Student/Artist
13.13.13 by Tan Mae Shen
“Yes, the reading of 13.13.13 did resonate with me in terms of LGBT issues and marriage. And how in the local context couples are trying to find ways to have a child.” – Dan Danial, Student
Of What Could Be by Beverly Wee
“Yes. I think I resonated most with the themes of trust and betrayal, and its boundaries. What constitutes trust and what constitutes betrayal. And it makes me reflect on where I drew the line.” – Eve Voigtlander, TV Producer
“Yes, It’s a universal choice for anyone who wants to pursue his/her dream. A choice between what you want to do or have to do.” – Patrina Chan, PMEB
