Only with trust can we walk together
Finally, Tracy returns. Yet everything seems different from what she remembers.
At a reunion with university mates, Tracy discovers that people have changed, their ideas and convictions now at odds with one another. A series of incidents in the media industry puts Tracy in a precarious position, prompting her friends to rally around her. It is as if they’ve travelled back to a less complicated time.
Everyone finds a way to respond to society and to life. Can Tracy’s comeback make amends for the past? What choices do people have to launch themselves anew when everything else seems lost?
Playwright Cyrus Lam’s Beyond the Corner, a story about youthful ideals and a university new media platform’s rise and fall, has been featured in the HKRep’s Open Platform. Lam’s second work selected by The Open Platform is a script that again delves into ideals and beliefs.
