Just when you thought you knew what NS was all about…
Two decades after Army Daze, it’s time to rediscover National Service – in all its familiarity and strangeness! Two comedies and a musical all about NS – why we hate it, love it, fear it and ultimately, can’t live without it!
Full Tank by Laremy Lee – Sergeant Leroy and his motley tank crew hijack a tank and go AWOL, embarking on a joyride through the night streets of Singapore! Meanwhile, the authorities (ALL of them) are in a panic over yet another inexplicable threat to national security. How oh how will it all end?
Radio Silence by Laremy Lee – An NSF officer and his assigned driver lose their way while on an unspecified mission in a foreign jungle, and find themselves drawn deeper and deeper into a no man’s land where protocol and hierarchy can break down as easily as the radio…
Botak Boys by Julian Wong – BMT is every Singaporean male’s nightmare. Or is it? Experience the heartache, the bravery and the rude shocks as Justin and his blur buddies sing and dance their way through Tekong! Will he find friends? Will his secret be exposed? Will he even survive the first two weeks?
The production was nominated for Best Ensemble at the LIFE! Theatre Awards 2009.
