Merdeka / 獨立 /சுதந்திரம்: The Reading List - Special Prices!
The Wild Rice production of Merdeka / 獨立 /சுதந்திரம், by Alfian Saat and Neo Hai Bin and directed by Glen Goei & Jo Kukathas brings questions of history and mental and emotional decolonisation to the Singapore stage, in a run from October 10th to 27th. The production portrays history as a personal matter, to be wrestled with, discussed, argued over, to be celebrated or to be appalled by. Essential to that process are histories, written histories, books, and they make an appearance on stage and in the text of the play. The playbill features a page on “Alfian's Reading List”, showing a few of the books that inspired the authors.
To celebrate this play, and the work it does in making history vital and relatable, we're offering special prices to our web customers on some of the books on that list (the ones we published-lah!), as well as a few others that we selected or which the playwrights mentioned to us. See the play! Tickets are still available... and take advantage of some very special prices to read the books!
