2012 New Plays Selection 2012, commissioned by the Hong Kong Arts Festival Show Flat is part of the Hong Kong New Plays Selection series, a bilingual collection of theater works representing the best of contemporary Hong Kong drama. Playwright Poon Wai-sum explores the fantasy and fakery of the real estate market, examining what the housing obsession means to densely-packed Hong Kong – all with a sharp eye and a sense of humor. Three real estate agents compete to snare a pair of prospective home buyers. The husband and wife, who sell miniature mansions as memorials for the dead, are skeptical yet tempted after years of searching for the right apartment. Gradually, the agents switch from trying to outdo each other to working together to secure a sale. Luxurious show flats spark dreams of a Chinese proverb about “gardens in the air.” Gorgeous views take your breath away and spacious rooms fill your imagination. But when the flat is finally yours... – Oh, my God
