The Singapore Literary Festival Presents: Generations and Genres
Reaching back before 1965, the year of national independence, Singaporean literature has seen the development of literary generations and genres. In this reading, you will hear works written by different generations of Singaporean writers working in different genres, and discover the vitality of a growing literary tradition. Haresh Sharma (pictured) has written more than 50 plays which have been staged in Singapore, London, Cairo, Melbourne, Busan, New Delhi, Hong Kong, and others. Cyril Wong’s work has been anthologized in "The Epigram Books Collection of Best New Singaporean Short Stories: Volume One," among others. Verena Tay has published three collections of plays: "In the Company of Women: Selected Plays," "In the Company of Heroes," and "Victimology."
