Singapore 2008. With the economy booming and the demand for land intense, the young, the old – and the dead – are forced to jostle for space to call their own: a property developer’s mother refuses to move from their family home to make way for his new and very profitable apartment block; whilst a psychic civil servant – charged with relocating a cemetery – has come up against the most stubborn corpse yet.
Performed in repertory with ‘wAve’ during Yellow Earth’s 2009 Autumn tour.
Boom was created by Singapore Repertory Theatre in 2008 and was developed through the Royal Court Theatre’s International Programme in London.
