Our 11th Brother:
Lim Bo Seng's Formative Years

Much has been said about the great work Lim Bo Seng, one of our country's well-known war heroes, had done during World War II. However, have you ever wondered what he was like as a child, and what made him the man he was – a passionate, country-loving young man?

《十一》Our 11th Brother: Lim Bo Seng's Formative Years uses theatre as an imaginative medium to explore the challenges that Lim Bo Seng faced as a young boy growing up. The performance involves audience participation at different important junctures of his younger days to investigate themes such as loyalty, responsibility and family. Students will also be stimulated through interactive activities and dialogues to develop their capabilities for self-reflection and critical thinking in Mandarin.

Conducted in Mandarin


August 2012

Date: 23 - 25 August 2012
Time: 8pm


Trapped in an unknown time, in an unknown corner afar, the only things five unknown souls can recall are the great uncertainties of their correlation.

They embark on a retracing of mutual identities but soon derail into pondering over the state of their beings. Is this merely an attempt to provide meaning to their transient forms – however arbitrary?
They start to reflect, and try to salvage whatever is left of their memory, while yearning for a glimpse of a beacon of hope somewhere afar.

Afar is playwright Lee Shyh Jih's breakthrough work. Lee is known for the sensual realism in his works, but with Afar, he takes you into the mystical realm of liminality.

Directed by Jalyn Han, Afar features an eclectic mix of renowned actors in Singapore – Doreen Toh, Goh Seok Ai, Karen Tan, Tan Shou Chen and Tan Wan Sze.

Performed in Mandarin with English subtitles
