Singapore Theatre in 2017 is created by Centre 42 as an attempt to document all local theatre productions in the year 2017 in a timeline, as a visual representation of the vibrancy of the Singapore theatre scene. Singapore Theatre in 2017 was exhibited in the Centre 42 courtyard from 14 December 2017 to 31 January 2018.

Responding to public feedback, the panels have been revised. At this point, they capture 133 dramatic works that were staged in 2017.
