If you missed the first session run for the charity “Children of the Mekong”, it is still time to book your tickets for today, tomorrow and Saturday (25-26 and 27th of April).
It is a dark comedy written by Y. Reza and played by the HK Theater Association. No worries for English speaking spectators, English surtitles have been added to the play (or it is a good excuse to work on your foreign language skills perhaps?).
The story: Two kids get involved in an argument at school because Bruno refuses to let Ferdinand join his gang. Ferdinand breaks Bruno’s teeth with a stick and the parents meet to discuss the matter. During this meeting, the true nature of each person will be revealed. Ferdinand’s parents are an “always-on-the phone” lawyer who doesn’t seem to be interested in the discussion and his upper-class wife seems bored by the absence of her husband. While Bruno’s parents; the other couple is a self-made entrepreneur who just threw away the family’s hamster and his wife is writing a book about Darfur and ready to give lessons about education to everyone.
The discussion quickly turns into irrational arguments which made perfect funny moments for the spectators. I really enjoyed it and I do recommend you book your seats with them before the play is gone!
