Boom is the human being left behind in the advancement of society. It is the sadness, confusion, the reluctance. Boom tells the story of an elderly woman and her property agent son in Singapore, who are struggling over the fact that the government wants to reclaim their family home and the pressure from their neighbours. Their destinies become interwoven with that of an idealistic civil servant, Jeremiah, who is facing the greatest challenge of his career—persuading a reluctant corpse to yield its memories.
Boom was conceptualised at the Royal Court Theatre in London in 2007, and developed and staged by the Singapore Repertory Theatre in September 2008. It was nominated for Best Original Script for The Straits’ Life! Theatre Awards in 2009.
