First staged in 1993 to critical acclaim, 'Off Centre' is recognised as a landmark play in the history of Singapore theatre, best remembered for bringing mental illness and its patients’ plights to the attention of the media and general public in Singapore.

The play traces the friendship of Saloma and Vinod and the hurdles they have to overcome, including social stigmas, prejudices and personal conflicts.

'Off Centre' has also been selected by the Ministry of Education as the first Singapore play to be offered as a GCE ‘O’ Level literature text from 2007, and has been republished by The Necessary Stage.

This special two disc set includes interviews with playwright Haresh Sharma, director Alvin Tan, and members of the cast
