M1 Peer Pleasure is a celebration of youth theatre. It is a platform for young people aged 13–25 to stage productions at professional theatre venues, under the mentorship of theatre professionals, for audiences young and old. These collaborations let youths engage with their peers and with issues that concern them, culminating in creative and open exchanges through drama and dialogue.
A key goal of the festival is to develop and showcase more original works by young people so that they can communicate their unique perspectives on relevant social issues and contribute to a richer understanding of the world we live in.
In 2018–19, the festival will focus on the issue of poverty in Singapore, with a series of workshop offerings in 2018, and performances and engagement programmes in 2019.
