Title: No air.
Papa knows best.
Exegesis.
Authors: Tan, John Yong Liang.
Keywords: DRNTU::Humanities::Literature::Singapore
Issue Date: 2012
Abstract: The two plays explore some of the overarching themes in Singapore - namely repression and social surveillance. No Air investigates issues revolving around the recent MRT breakdown which prompted several responses that demand critical reflection and discourse. Papa Knows Best plays on the notion of the nanny state and looks at how such paternal control with its occasional draconian measures governs the way Singaporeans live and behave in this infamously repressive and oppressive-like city-state.
