Thesis work

This Night of Small Things is a site-specific play set in a now defunct Bukit Brown cemetery in Singapore. Weaving together five stories, the play examines the notion of sacrifice and asks the question - besides the rich, male Chinese pioneers buried there, who are some of the others worthy of remembrance in the narrative of Bukit Brown.
