About Campaign

ends 23 Aug 2016, 12 AM

'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.
