Conceived by Ong Keng Sen in 1990, the TheatreWorks Writers’ Lab has been pioneering and is instrumental in encouraging and developing Singapore playwriting with its varied and far-reaching programmes. The Writers’ Lab aims to continually provide new and emerging playwrights opportunities to hone their creative writing skills. In addition, The Writers’ Lab also maintains its R&D profile by affording established writers and Writers’ Lab alumni an incubating environment to advance their new works . To date, the Writers’ Lab has published 5 anthologies of new writings which serve as a resource for those wanting to stage Singapore plays. The last publication, ‘Forty-Four Winning Plays from the 24-Hour Playwriting Competition‘ is made available free while stocks last. It’s also available at all public libraries in Singapore.
