Performances

-------------------------

This is the one and only back garden of the theatre world.

It brings together 22 playwrights who are ready to pounce with latent energy and gifts.

What we need is you, to fill the audience seats. Why wait?

 

……………………………………………………………………………
The annual meeting is here!
……………………………………………………………………………
This year marks the eighth “Playwright Scheme” since it was launched in 2006. This year, Mr. Poon Wai Sum will bring together 22 playwrights to present 22 plays.
They are theatre practitioners in Chinese drama coming from the Mainland and Hong Kong, with their diverse expertise: seasoned pros in acting, theatre directors who think outside the box, the most sought-after playwrights, or “crouching tigers, hidden dragons” who are ready to pounce with latent energy and gifts.
The audience will be surprised by the creativity and ideas that was inspired from everyday life, in the hope that you will feel and reflect on your lives.
Please support original plays! See you at the theatre!
……………………………………………………………………………
A Gentle Reminder

The purpose of the Playwright Scheme is a means and not an end - we hope to nurture, not to harvest;

That is why some of the works may only be ‘performed’ in the format of ‘play reading’;

And one or two others may be best seen as ‘works in progress’ only.
