I just attended a play called Fear of Writing by Tan Tarn How and performed by communications students from NTU.

First performed by Theaterworks a few years ago, the play explores state- and self-censorship in Singapore, an issue that continues to plague this nation.

It projects the subject through the lives of several characters including a playwright, an office worker, a student, and a newsreader. On several occasions, it mentions me eg. the playwright wanting to write a piece about me but ultimately withdrawing from it, the office worker hesitatingly buying my book, and so on.
