Based on the semi-autobiography of playwright, director, performer Ching-man, the play transformed a personal story into a dramatic narrative. The family history of Ching-man’s father, reflected the political & economic changes of Hong Kong before and after 1997. And the recent Extradition Bill intensified the China-Hong Kong tension, as well as the worries about the future of Hong Kong. Young playwright Owen co-wrote the televised confession episodes, presented in a black humorous way.
After joining the protest against the Extradition Bill, Mrs.Chan finds that her husband disappeared. At the same time, she received a strange phone call asking her to go to a to specific spot if she wants to meet her husband… Facing the punishment, the repentance. Mrs.Chan is tackling a battlefield for making her confession and sign the repentance.
Through live video projection and voice-overs with theatrical lighting and sound effects, “Repentance” promised to be full of dark humour, tension and affection!
The show will be performed in Cantonese and some French with French & English subtitles.
