Main Tulis Group (MTG) is Singapore’s only collective that works on developing English and Malay plays. The emphasis is on “main” and “tulis”—writing organically, without restrictions—while also being about playwriting as a craft.
The group organises regular readings of works-in- progress and is known for its dramatised readings showcase ETA : 9 MIN at Centre 42’s yearly event, Late-Night Texting. MTG also partners with institutions such as the Esplanade and the National University of Singapore to conduct outreach events on writing and mentor young writers.
As part of the residency, Main Tulis Group will also be hosting Script Circles, slated to begin in August 2021, which will be open to the public to share scripts to gain feedback or to learn about playwriting.
