Serunding, written by Ahmad Musta’ain Bin Khamis (my popular smart brother!!!), is the winning script from the 24-Hour Playwriting Competition 2010 (Open Category). It was the first winning play to premiere in two Performance Tours to the South East District in 2010 and 2011. The re-staging of Serundingwill engage a new audience and encourage participants to aspire to be a winner in this year’s 24-Hour Playwriting Competition.
Starring the delightful & popular Aidli Mosbit once again, this one-woman play stirs to life the voice of Safiah like a perfect dish of serunding. A Malay homemaker, Safiah’s belief as a devout Muslim and parental expectations fall into conflict with her children; she also suffers tedious ties with her mother-in-law ‘Sofea Jane’. Told through humour, food and many phone calls, Serunding draws us to the heart and pain of a mother’s love. A spicy sweet expression of the Singapore family caught at the centre of cultural values and modern living.
The re-staging of Serunding is part of TheatreWorks’ Writing & Community. Writing & Community is a holistic and unique writing programme that serves the community while at the same time; harness the talents and creativity in the community. Writing & Community is one of the many strands of TheatreWorks Engagement work.
