The forgotten stories surrounding the Sisters Islands (also known as Pulau Dua) are brought to life in this whimsical short play, adapted from playwright Jean Tay’s Sisters: The Untold Stories of the Sisters Islands. Come listen to this captivating tale told through puppetry and storytelling, as we re-imagine the myth of the Sisters Islands, and re-visit the haunting account about a young woman who drowned in the waters near the islands in 1963.
