The most painful thing about a break-up
Is not the loss of a lover
But the loss of oneself


Finalist in “The 3rd Young Playwright Scheme” by Cinematic Theatre


Comments from adjudicators of “The 3rd Young Playwright Scheme”:

"This drama with only two characters unfolds with clear logic and progresses at a measured pace – a commendable work." - Dr Ping-kuen Cheung MH (Head of Liberal Studies, The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts)

"The playwright establishes a scenario which links up two break-up stories, one which is convincing and imaginative with insightful details" - Miss Wai-hang Fung (Resident Director, Hong Kong Repertory Theatre)


It is the evening of Valentine's Day. Having just broken up with her boyfriend, Rainbow feels despondent about life and love. She escapes to the music room of a deserted secondary school and plans to take her own life there. There she meets Mac, a stranger who is whiling away his time with beer and cigarettes. Rainbow pleads with him to leave so she can end her life, but Mac refuses to budge. So this man and this woman end up spend the night together…
