What's In The Bag
by Sathya Sai Centre for Educare What would you do if you found a mysterious bag sitting on a table in an HDB void deck? Pretend you didn’t see it? Walk away? Call the police? #whatsinthebag - Three groups of friends (of different races and religions as well as age groups), separately, come across a suspicious looking black bag sitting on a table at an HDB void deck. How each group relates and responds to the bag and ultimately to each other in the process, forms the main crux of the play. Depicting some of the potential threats that we face as a nation like racial and religious conflicts, dangers of rash online comments, and terrorism, the play conveys key messages on racial and religious harmony in Singapore: That all religions encourage love for motherland and fellow man, that, religions only promote good, not conflict, and that our individual and collective response as a united multi-racial, multi-religious community is crucial in keeping our country safe.
