Writing & Community presents Serunding!
Serunding, written by Ahmad Musta’ain Bin Khamis, is the winning script from the 24-Hour Playwriting Competition 2010 (Open Category). It was the first winning play to premiere in two Performance Tours to the South East District in December 2010 and January 2011 and North East District in August 2011 and September 2011. The re-staging of Serunding will engage a new audience and encourage participants to aspire to be a winner in this year’s 24-Hour Playwriting Competition.
Starring the delightful & popular Aidli Mosbit once again, this one-woman play stirs to life the voice of Safiah like a perfect dish of serunding. A Malay homemaker, Safiah’s belief as a devout Muslim and parental expectations fall into conflict with her children; she also suffers tedious ties with her mother-in-law ‘Sofea Jane’. Told through humour, food and many phone calls, Serunding draws us to the heart and pain of a mother’s love. A spicy sweet expression of the Singapore family caught at the centre of cultural values and modern living.
The re-staging of Serunding is part of TheatreWorks' Writing & Community. Writing & Community is a holistic and unique writing programme that serves the community while at the same time; harness the talents and creativity in the community. Writing & Community is one of the many strands of TheatreWorks Engagement work.
