Poon Wai-sum pens and directs alleged black comedy


Some say she’s a centurion. Having lived alone for years, she announces her self-exile on her proclaimed 100th birthday, when she plans to move from month to month to the homes of her three children until the day she can no longer walk, where she’ll stay put until she meets her Maker.


Her three children all suffer from their own family strife and personal problems. When they hear their mother’s new strategic plan, they are all at a loss. This is the last straw in their beleaguered existence. Will they survive this test?


Following The Diary of Song, Poon Wai-sum returns to the HKRep in a new show of his dexterity as playwright and director, bringing to the stage the love and sorrow of a multigenerational family. HKRep veteran Chow Chi-fai appears en travesti as the matriarch, elevating Poon’s fantastic theatre aesthetics to another level.


Playwright and Director Poon Wai-sum will join a post-performance sharing in performances on 25 September 2022 (Sunday) and 1 October 2022 (Saturday).
