Popular 1960s radio play Adukku Veettu Annasamy gets a theatrical makeover!

Ravindran Drama Group presents the first of a trilogy of plays that capture the lives of Singaporeans in the late ‘60s following their relocation from kampongs to HDB estates as part of the government’s efforts in providing public housing for its populace.

Created by Cultural Medallion recipient P Krishnan, Adukku Veettu Annasamywas first broadcast over Singapore radio in 1969 to overwhelming response. The comedy broadly examines social issues including civic-mindedness, relationships with neighbours, road-crossing etiquette and National Service.
