The Necessary Stage presents
presented as part of Esplanade’s Feed Your Imagination 2023
A group of students have been assigned a project on the theme of National Education. They wrack their brains to find out what they can do that will really make a difference.
Instead of going on field trips to the Parliament House or performing a multiracial dance, they decide to create a project that will make all young Singaporeans value life and not take their comforts for granted.
They decide to create Survivor Singapore.But...have they gone too far to prove a point?
