Views: 402
Duration: 37 min

In this latest podcast, ArtsEquator editor Nabilah Said and theatre reviewer Naeem Kapadia discuss the productions We Were So Hopeful Then (written by Ellison Tan and directed by Alvin Tan) and Acting Mad (with texts by Haresh Sharma, Harris Albar and Maryam Noorhimli and directed by Haresh Sharma), presented as part of The Orange Production 2019 by The Necessary Stage. Amongst other things, they talk about the role that developmental platforms such as The Orange Production play in the larger ecosystem of Singapore theatre, the value of turning the attention in both plays towards the industry itself and whether there was any “Bicentennial creep” into these works.
