Not Afraid To Remember is about how a woman stood up against unbearable odds and cruelty for the sake of her fellow man. The play focuses on the internment of Singapore teacher Elizabeth Choy by the Japanese during the Occupation in the 1940s. It is a play of essences, rather than one concerning polemics, and deals in a spare fashion with strength under extreme pressure. The action centres on the interrogations which took place, some real, some imagined. It conveys in simple images the strong beliefs held by both Choy and the Japanese.
It is a work about unbending faith and courage.
Presented as part of the Singapore Drama Festival 1986.
