1915 is a collection of two plays: 1915 and Romusha. 1915 re-explores the Singapore Mutiny by the Indian Army’s 5th Light Infantry Battalion on Monday 15th February 1915 through the eyes of the mutineers, British and ordinary people in then Singapore. Romusha (Slave Labourer) rearticulates the silenced voices of history in World War II when Japan sent an estimated 70,000 Asian slave labourers from Singapore and Malaya to complete the infamous 415 km Siam-Burma Death Railway. The book is an artistic register of the horrors of politics, war and oppression. The book received the Singapore Internationale Award 2005 from the Singapore International Foundation.
