In The Spirits Play, five Japanese spirits - a General, a Man, a Mother, a Girl and a Poet - recall their life experience in the Second World War. They are collectively thrown into turmoil in the process of recollection, and in their wish to 'make sense' of the war and its atrocities inflicted upon them, not only by the foreign enemy but also by their own government and army. A notable work in Singapore theatre, 'The Spirits Play' poignantly depicts the agony, guilt and turmoil that occur in the aftermath of war.
