About This Book

Swordfish + Concubine is a play inspired by the old Malay classic Sejarah Melayu. Playwright Kee Thuan Chye takes the popular story of the swordfish attack on Singapura and that of the Sultan's favourite concubine who is sentenced to death by impalement, and weaves them together to produce an epic that resonates with the present. He infuses it with drama, comedy, action, satire, gamelan music and rap. Yes, rap! It is sweeping, lavish and filled with fun, and it appeals to the senses, the mind and the heart. In 2006, it was judged one of the top five plays entered for the International Playwriting Festival organised by Warehouse Theatre in the UK.
