Conflict Circle

Singaporean playwright Ellison Tan's foray into the absurd

Event Details


Wed 05 Jul 2017




Basement Studio, Lower Grey’s Ave



Conflict Circle is Singaporean playwright Ellison Tan's foray into the absurd. A young playwright prodigy with three professional productions under her belt, Conflict Circle challenges the nature of theatre and the futility and absurdity of performance as three actors find themselves in the roles of a director, a stage manager and an usher. 

Conflict Circle will premiere in 2019, as part of Singapore theatre company The Necessary Stage's platform, The Orange Production. The Orange Production is an exploratory platform where the company collaborates with new, emerging artists on smaller, portable works staged in a black box theatre.
