The Vault: The TRUE Awards

April 11 @ 7:30 pm - April 12 @ 9:00 pm

The Vault: The TRUE Awards comprises a performance-response and a reading of excerpts from the original text.

First staged sixty years ago in 1964, Lim Chor Pee’s A White Rose at Midnight centres around disillusioned English-educated scholar Lee Hua Min, and his tumultous relationship with his flatmate Wong’s sister, the Chinese-educated ex-nightclub singer Ching Mei. Written and staged in the uncertain, volatile years pre-independence, A White Rose at Midnight was a humorous, witty and prescient portrait of both a soul and a nation divided.

A White Rose at Midnight was first performed by the Experimental Theatre Club at the Cultural Centre Theatre in National University of Singapore, and received a partial dramatised reading in 2014 as part of Centre 42’s lecture-performance, The Vault 1.1 – Nineteen Sixty-Four.

This year, seven students from the National University of Singapore’s Theatre & Performance Studies TS3103 Theatre Lab will present a fully-staged response to A White Rose at Midnight. In accompaniment to this performance-response, excerpts of the original text will be read by selected alumni of the Theatre & Performance Studies programme.


Join us to experience this performance-response and celebrate the nominees of The TRUE Awards.
