Beach Burden Bliss: A Double Bill @ Punggol Beach

Beach Burden Bliss is a double bill site-specific production that encompasses two original plays: Burden and Bliss by Playwright-Producer-Director Sharmila Melissa Yogalingam (Producer-Director: Emily of Emerald Hill [2016], Dinner with Friends [2017], Agnes of God [2018]. Producer-Director-Writer: Railway Records, [2019]).

Burden tells the real life story of World War II survivor, Chan Cheng Yean, who survived the Sook Ching massacre that took place in 1942, when truckloads of Chinese men who were suspected of anti-Japanese activities were rounded up and mercilessly shot at 3 different beaches, including Punggol Beach.

Chan miraculously survived.

Witness his story, in this retelling of a horrific time in Singapore’s history.

Bliss on the other hand is a light hearted comedy about a family who waits for some overseas-based family members to come to dinner at a Punggol restaurant. However the expected visitors are late, and whilst waiting, the family unexpectedly reveals plenty of scandalous secrets about themselves.

Taking place at the site-specific location of Punggol Beach itself, Burden is a re-enactment of a real life story, and Bliss is a story inspired by real life.
