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 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.

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO CONTINUE GROWING THE THEATRE SCENE.

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.
