REHEARSED READING (DIGITAL)
A quirky tale about housing the living and raising the dead.
On this tiny red dot, where both living and dead jostle for space, Boom tells the story of a stubborn old woman and her property agent son, who are struggling over the en bloc sale of their home. Their destinies become linked with that of Jeremiah, an idealistic civil servant, who is facing the greatest challenge of his career – persuading a reluctant corpse to relocate.
Written by award-winning playwright Jean Tay, Boom was commissioned by SRT and staged in 2008 under SRT’s Stage Two.
