Alive in the Mortuary - Stage On Screen
Presented by: Chung Ying Theatre Company
Produced by: Chung Ying Theatre Company
Platform: art-mate VIDEO ROOM
Synopsis: Whateverone wishes is fantasy; a path full of brambles along is aspiration
Life is short yet aspiration is great. If we ever are aware that life is in fact a countdown of time,minute by minute, full of unexpectables and unknowns, we should live whatever we wish or work our hardest for our aspirations, even though we know brambles are along the path.
A surgeon who has been earning high salaries is on voluntary rescue service in a remote district in war. The hospital is under attack. To keep him safe, his co-workers lock him up in the mortuary. Also inside the room is a young engineer, similarly avoiding the danger. The two strangers have their own problems before coming here. Amidst chaos and confusion in life, their short encounter in the closed space turns into an argument. During their bitter conversation, they suddenly realise when stuck in the hardships and setbacks of life, one easily puts aside or simply aborts one's aspirations. Many people give up their aspirations at the budding stage and few are extended an olive branch and give themselves a wake-up blow.
In 2021, a new production team of Chung Ying will perform this must-see-once-in-life drama by renowned playwright Chong Mui Ngam,which features Best Actor (Tragedy/Drama) of the 1st HongKong Drama Awards Peter Poon's comeback performance to Hong Kong theatre. Everyone's life is a countdown. Let us go in company along with our audience and regain our young and original aspiration.
