By (author)Elangovan


MINES is a play by provocative Singaporean playwright Elangovan. It is set amidst a fictitious war between Malaysia and Singapore and touches on racism, patriotism and the differences between both sides. This thought-provoking play, which was given a last-minute go-ahead for staging by the authorities, challenges the notion of peace and harmony in the Singaporean urban life. Elangovan, considered a pioneer in Tamil poetry and experimental Tamil theatre in Singapore, has had his plays staged worldwide and won the Southeast Asia (SEA) Write Award in 1997 for his contribution to literature and theatre in Singapore. With support from the Lee Foundation for publication.
