HKAPA School of Drama: Luna Gale by Rebecca Gilman
American playwright Rebecca Gilman’s Luna Gale is described by the Los Angeles Times as one of the most valuable recent additions to American drama. It tells the story of how a social worker handles the case of a neglected child by young parents in a society of scarce resources, a theme of relevance in the Hong Kong society. In his staging, director Terence Chang wants the audience to consider how, in a society where resources are scarce, a safety net can be put in place for everyone.

HKAPA School of Drama: The Adding Machine
Have you ever imagined yourself being replaced by a machine? Have you ever thought whether your contribution to the society matters?
 
Mr Zero, the protagonist of The Adding Machine, is an accountant who remains “seated all day to add up digits” and a dedicated employee of his company who never takes a day off, until one day he is fired when his boss replaces him with a newly launched adding machine. Infuriated, he kills his boss and is sentenced to death, but is later brought back to life and encounters interesting people from different times in his afterlife journey…
 
Elmer Rice’s The Adding Machine was written at a time when mechanical applications gained unprecedented popularity in the 20s; Academy alumnus director Alex Cheung digs into a similar theme in today’s age of artificial intelligence. By portraying the “one-dimensional” character Mr Zero and taking the audience through his choices, the director poses a question: “In the era of technology, do we still have a choice?”
 
Date/ Time: 28.11 – 1.12.2018 (7:30pm) & 1.12.2018 (2:30pm)
Venue: Drama Theatre, The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts
Ticket price: $50 – $105
