Chinese language theatre in Singapore has gone through a century of ups and downs. It was borne out of a mission to inspire public discourse and to aid disaster relief in the beginning of the 20th century, and developed in the post-war era of multivariate aesthetic and political currents. A century of Singapore Chinese language theatre has not only contributed to the painting of Singapore's cultural landscape, it is also closely associated with the turbulence in the world. Beginning from modern drama's first emergence in 1913, this volume traces the centennial history of Chinese language theatre in Singapore in the socio, cultural and political contexts. Through a survey of historical records accompanied by rare images, the book is a reflection on the cultural ethos and social development of the different periods.
