About Campaign

'Understudy' is a new playscript-in-development by a team of seven writers. The collaborative writing project titled 'Project Understudy' is a creative attempt to imagine a fictional present set more than two decades after Tan Tarn How's 1994 play 'Undercover'.

'Project Understudy' was first presented by Centre 42 on 23 May 2016. It was a Process-Presentation where the writers shared their collaborative writing methodology and read excerpts from the 1st draft of the script 'Understudy' to a public audience. For the synopsis and full documentation of this Phase 1 presentation, visit http://centre42.sg/the-vault-project-understudy.

Phase 2 will see a continuation of script development employing the collaborative writing strategies, from September 2016 to March 2017 (estimated 6 months). The goal is to raise enough funds to support the team of writers and editor towards a second draft and a reading in March 2017.

Centre 42 will contribute in terms of venue and technical costs towards the reading.

About the Charity

Centre 42 is a small and nimble team 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.

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO CONTINUE GROWING THE THEATRE SCENE.

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

This year, our SMALL WAYS TO 42K fundraising campaign aims to raise $42,000 by March 2023. Here are three Small Ways you can journey with us to get there:
