“Regardless of race, language, religion or…place of birth?”

Is the Singapore identity under threat? Currently, one out of every four residents was born outside of Singapore. By 2030, the population is projected to hit 6.9 million, with 55% born in Singapore.

The influx of immigrants and foreign workers has resulted in a rising tide of anti-foreigner sentiments. They have been blamed for overcrowding on public transport, escalating property prices and wage depression.

There are concerns that some of them are forming their separate enclaves and have yet to be seamlessly integrated into Singaporean society. There are worries that they might form a docile and grateful vote bank in future elections.

With testimonies assembled from a series of interviews, Cook A Pot Of Curry will dive headlong into these burning issues. The play will be directed by Glen Goei, featuring a six-member ensemble cast consisting of some of Singapore’s most versatile actors.

In The Spotlight is a season dedicated to a single Singaporean playwright’s work. The aim of this season is to provide audiences with a representative survey of the playwright’s body of work, and more importantly to examine how these works relate to one another and to today’s audiences.

The programme itself will consist of two revivals of the playwright’s work and the premiere of a brand new play. In addition, there will also be dramatised readings and workshops conducted that will explore the styles, themes and inspirations running through the playwright’s works.

This year, W!LD RICE will present three works by their award-winning Resident Playwright, Alfian Sa’at.
