Between the Lines: Rant and Rave II is a spinoff of Rant and Rave, first staged by The Finger Players in 2012 and 2014. In this latest iteration, Between the Lines sheds light on the history and evolution of our literary scene: from the literature during our post-colonial days, the advent of book retail giant Borders in the 90s, to the literary activisms that have galvanised writers and readers of today. Relive the conversations and events that made history with actors Serene Chen and Jean Ng as they take on the roles of real-life poets, novelists, publishers and many more in this loving tribute to the written word.


There will be an exclusive post-show book sale. Payment in cash only.
This production is by The Finger Players and commissioned by the Singapore Writers Festival.
