Slate is a theatre collective which aims to engage Tembusians and spread appreciation for the art form. We hope to spread the love of theatre and engage as many individuals we can with what we call the "truth on stage". We believe that theatre is a social commentary and we are excited to share this with everyone. While many perceive drama and theatre as a niche, rather intimidating world, Slate views it as a means to engage the wider community. Hence, one of our main aims would be to provide opportunities for those who are interested in theatre to get involved, no matter their background or past experience.

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
