Smartypants and the Swordfish
Written by award-winning playwright Jean Tay, SmartyPants and the Swordfish revolves around Nadim, a young kampong boy who unexpectedly saves the kindgom from a violent swordfish attack. As a group of students explore the circumstances leading to the boy's death at the hands of the jealous King Raja, they discover that there are many ways one can dissect and reimagine a story. Through a unique interactive theatre staging, our young audiences will be immersed in the story playing swordfishes, the sultan's advisors and the villagers of Redhill.
Directed by the critically-acclaimed Samantha Scott-Blackhall, SmartyPants and the Swordfish is more than a retelling of a classic legend of Redhill. It is a timely reflection of where we have come from and where we are going as a nation, especially so in this time of this Bicentennial year. The play doesn't just retell history, it highlights the nuances of power, addresses the issue of bullying and the importance of standing up for what is right.
