The ever-popular 24-Hour Playwriting Competition challenges participants to write a play within 24 hours. This year’s competition is the 17th edition!

It will be held at the iconic Malay Heritage Centre situated in the heritage precinct of Kampong Gelam. The centre is a significant and vibrant venue, which showcases the culture and contributions of the pioneer Malay community to the development of Singapore. With its rich history embedded in the artefacts, installations and exhibitions, the Malay Heritage Centre provides the inspiration for our aspiring playwrights to create new writing.
