Plays For Schools
by Haresh Sharma
In November 2012, local theatre company The Necessary Stage launched Plays for Schools, the fourth collection of plays by the award-winning local playwright.
The plays featured in this anthology include contemporary adaptations such as Hamlet, Such Sweet Sorrow (based on Romeo and Juliet), What Big Bombs You Have (referencing Little Red Riding Hood) and Ah Boy & the Beanstalk (based on Jack and the Beanstalk). The collection also includes the hugely entertaining History, Whose Story? and Survivor Singapore, the latter being previously staged to full houses at the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival in 2007.
This compilation also includes an introduction by Alvin Tan, Founder and Artistic Director of TNS, as well as Resident Playwright Haresh Sharma’s notes on the plays.
