Detention is a non-verbal physical comedy for all ages – no translation needed! This fresh example of classic Hong Kong humor translates to all audiences without words. The piece is an acrobatic comedy combining clowning, martial arts and percussion. Performed by a group of talented comedians, drummers, tap dancers, xiqu (Chinese Opera) performers & even a Kung Fu master!
The Isle, written by leading Hong Kong playwright Paul Poon, depicts one couple’s encounter on a remote island where their past and present overlap. As they ask the question “do we stay or leave?” a battle of wills unfolds that leads to a surprising and dramatic finale. Witty and touched with pathos, Poon’s play is a compassionate yet skeptical take on enduring love.

Based on the classic 1900 play Reigen by Arthur Schnitzler (better known by its French title La Ronde), The Fire Of Desire updates the setting to present day Hong Kong, where five men and five women (all played by the same two actors) explore their frustrations and perspectives on love, marriage, and sex in ten different scenes, each scene taking place in a room with a different man and woman.
This acclaimed Hong Kong production subsequently inspired English playwright David Hare’s adaptation The Blue Room which starred Nicole Kidman on Broadway.
