SYNOPSIS

 

The play will be a celebration of theatre actors in Singapore, through the life of our very own extraordinary veteran actor, Re Sommasundram. Somma defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers in our Country from 70s till today. The play traces the meteoric rise of his career through his iconic stage performances, tv acting and revolutionary radio plays. He reached unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Somma, surrounded by darker influences, had his fair share of difficulties. The play will go deep into his life that is not known publicly. His struggles and his rise. It’s the hand-off of a legacy from one generation to the next, as life imitates art and vice versa. Re.Somma cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and theatre enthusiasts to this day. The staging of Re Somma signals our commitment to celebrate very own narratives to the Tamil audiences of the here and now. In “holding up the mirror to nature”, we are exploring ways to update and contemporize this play.
