We are giving away 5 pairs of tickets to our readers to catch BOOM on its opening night on 29th June. All you have to do is to answer a question at that end of this post.
BOOM is Sight Lines Production’s sophomore production and it was conceptualized amidst the backdrop of 2008’s En-bloc fever. This June’s staging features a revamped and timely story that captures the uproar surrounding recent public projects such as the impending demolition of Rochor Centre, Bukit Brown Cemetery and the KTM Railway Corridor.The gleaming corporate towers and mega-expressways that replace these icons, signal Singapore’s progress to the world – but at what cost?
On this tiny red dot, where sand is as precious as gold, and both living and dead jostle for space, BOOM tells the story of a stubborn old woman and her property agent son, who are struggling over the en bloc sale of their home. Their destinies become linked with that of Jeremiah, an idealistic civil servant, who is facing the greatest challenge of his career– persuading a reluctant corpse to relocate.
Welcome to the surreal world of BOOM, where the dead aren’t allowed to rest in peace and heaven is a luxury sky villa with A1 designer decor. The line between living and dead, between fantasy and reality, is constantly blurred in this comic yet poignant tale about en blocs and exhumations.
