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 theatre development space committed to the creation, documentation and promotion of text-based works for the Singapore stage.

In the last 6 years, we have transformed the pre-war bungalow along Waterloo Street into a well-loved blue house: a home for independent artists and collectives; a safe space to trial and create new works; a repository of our local theatre history and resources.

Our objectives are:
1.To nurture talent and incubate content, particularly in the area of text-based works and playwriting;
2.To build public awareness and appreciation for Singapore theatre; and
3.To be a focal point for research, documentation and critical discourse on the development of Singapore theatre.

As we strive to do even more for the scene in the coming years, we need your help! With theatres and creation spaces now closed, and many arts freelancers are without jobs for the foreseeable months, we hope to offer avenues of creation, documentation and training workshops and presentations that will sustain the livelihoods of our art-making community.

Every contribution enables us to continue growing Singapore's theatre scene through our myriad of programmes and initiatives. As a 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 growing our scene in local theatre. We need YOUR help!
