“Based on true events, SLEEP (THUYIL in Tamil) is a bilingual (English & Tamil) theatre production on sleep and sleep related issues faced by Singaporeans. There is no better time than now, for us to stage this production, to bring about more awareness on sleep. It is very saddening when search engines return us Singapore as the most sleep deprived country in the whole world. Though we have grown exponentially over the five decades, the increasing amount of stress faced by many, still has not dropped one bit. This is an alarming issue as many are not having substantial amounts of quality sleep that lead to several health issues like sleep apnea, insomnia, anger and depression. Sleep deprivation which is faced by individuals of all ages, especially 13-60 yrs old, needs to be addressed.”
