As the Singapore Bicentennial is celebrated, six young people form a group called “Raffles Must Fall” to examine our country's colonial legacy. During their gatherings, they pore over forgotten texts and artefacts re-enacting scenes from the past to better understand the nightmare of subjugation... and the dream of self-determination.
Written by the award-winning Alfian Sa'at in collaboration with up-and-coming playwright Neo Hai Bin, this provocative and moving new play confronts us with questions about how colonial structures still shape the society we live in today.
Why celebrate the beginning of colonialism rather than its end? Has Singapore gained independence without truly undergoing a process of decolonisation? And if Raffles must fall, what will he take down with him?
