The Malay Heritage Centre

Do you have an idea for a play?

Set them free at the 24-Hour Playwriting Competition 2014!

The ever-popular 24-Hour Playwriting Competition challenges participants to write a play within 24 hours. This year’s competition is the 17th edition!

It will be held at the iconic Malay Heritage Centre situated in the heritage precinct of Kampong Gelam. The centre is a significant and vibrant venue, which showcases the culture and contributions of the pioneer Malay community to the development of Singapore. With its rich history embedded in the artefacts, installations and exhibitions, the Malay Heritage Centre provides the inspiration for our aspiring playwrights to create new writing.

The competition was at another Heritage centre, the Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall in 2013.

One of the winners will have his / her winning play nurtured and developed by theatre professionals to a full production. This production will be taken on a performance tour primarily in the South East District in February and March 2015.
