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. But if 2020 has shown us anything, it's that the smallest things can have the largest impact. 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.


This year, we returned 42 Waterloo Street, our home since 2014. We've not only lost spaces for our artists and programmes, but also an important source of rental income. With the arts sector adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, many arts-workers and companies are trying our best to survive financially. We hope to continue in the small ways we can, to offer avenues of creation, documentation and training workshops and presentations that will sustain the livelihoods and spirits of our art-making community.

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.
