Smarty Pants and the Swordfish

- SYNOPSIS -

Written by award-winning playwright Jean Tay, Smarty Pants and the Swordfish revolves around Nadim, a young kampong boy who unexpectedly saves the kingdom 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.

By playing with the audience, posing difficult questions and exposing unique perspectives of the well-known legend, Smarty Pants and the Swordfish, does not just re-tell history – it highlights the nuances of power, address the issue of bullying and the importance of standing up for what is right.
