Chinese Lesson

Hong Kong Arts Festival New Play Selection 2016 This original play examines the psyche of Hong Kong’s millennial generation. Especially relevant after the recent “Umbrella Protests”, Chinese Lesson looks at Hong Kong students and their responses to the issues facing their city. This is a classroom drama about a Chinese language teacher and his six final year students who are about to take their university entrance exams. The play draws its material from workshops and interviews with actual secondary school and university students in Hong Kong. Playwright Tang Chi-kin creates a no-holds-barred portrayal of youth and how they see the future of their city, history, literature, culture and authority.
