What do illegal parking, invented languages, and ethical dilemmas all have in common? Superficially speaking, absolutely nothing. And yet, plays featuring these three completely unrelated subjects were a part of Raffles Players’ J1 Production: One-Two-Many, held at the Theatre Studies and Drama Room from 9–11 November.

You might remember their enthusiastic spin-off rendition of the song Roxie during morning assembly, or seen the lines of poetry chalked along the walls. That’s right – Lit Week is back once again. This annual event aims to celebrate Literature as a subject, and this year’s lineup of fun programmes was free for both Literature students and non-Literature students to enjoy.

Last Friday, months of back-breaking hard work and careful planning came to fruition for Raffles Film Society. Their showcase, Rewind V: Façade, featured thesis films by the graduating batch, as well as short, sharp vignettes by the Year 5s. Despite the variety of themes explored in the films, Façade did not fail to enthral the enthusiastic audience gathered in the PAC.
