tage of Agitation is a forum that features two prominent Singapore playwrights who will share their views on the theatre and drama landscape in Singapore, including those that have been evolving within the Malay theatre scene. The realms of creativity and the projection of imageries and social messages, not excluding the sense of agitation, are some of the underlying and conscious motivation amongst the playwright and theatre activists.
