Help Dark Matter Theatrics raise funds for their 2016 staging of "MICROMANAGE OVERWORK EXASPERATE (M.O.E.)".

Everybody's an expert on education. Everybody's started a sentence with, "Last time when I was in school..." at least once. And everybody - come on, admit it - has had moments where they felt someone else hadn't been taught properly in school.

What would it be like then, to step into the shoes of an educator? How do the people, whose job it is to teach our children, manage to uphold the standards that are set upon them - by society and by themselves? We are experts on our own education - should we also consider ourselves experts on educators?

Using material gleaned from interviews with a wide range of teachers - primary to secondary, in-service to retired, elite independent schools to neighbourhood institutions - M.O.E. seeks to explore the unspoken sides of education, and give voice to the true experiences, struggles and successes of some of our nation's most invisible heroes - our teachers.

Everybody's indebted to a teacher, in one way or another. If you've ever met a teacher you loved - or remember one you hated - then this play is for you.

About the Charity

Centre 42 is small - small team, small spaces, small works. From a small blue house on Waterloo Street, we have grown to be home to more than 170 artists and theatre collectives, supported the development of over 200 new theatrical projects, and brought theatre magic to more than 40,000 audiences.

But if 2020 has shown us anything, it's that the smallest things can have the largest impact. Our #smallwaysC42 fundraising campaign in 2020 saw our community pool efforts together to help raise funds for the next leg of C42's work, in fun and fulfilling ways!


Every contribution enables us to continue developing Singapore's theatre ecosystem through our myriad of programmes and initiatives that supports independent artists and arts groups. As a direct grant recipient of the National Arts Council for FY2020-22, we are funded partially for our work. We still need to raise at least 45% of our annual operations costs in order to sustain year on year.

Centre 42 is a non-profit theatre development space committed to the creation, documentation and promotion of text-based works for the Singapore stage. Our mission is to:
- nurture talent and incubate content of text-based works for the stage;
- build public awareness and appreciation for Singapore theatre; and
- be a focal point for research, documentation and critical discourse on the development of Singapore theatre.
