Why did an elephant run away?
Award-winning South Korean black comedy uncovers life’s absurdities
An elephant escapes from the zoo, wreaking havoc in town and disrupting election campaigns, leading to a public outcry. While the zookeeper—now a pariah—is held for questioning, testimonies from the detective, the zookeeper’s mother, his colleague and doctor contain wild digressions. Which of them is telling the truth about the elephant’s escape?
Soon after That’s Not True premiered in South Korea in 2012, it garnered such accolades as Best Production, Best Director and Best Actor at the 49th Dong – A Theatre Awards and the Grand Prize, Best Director and Best Actor at the 5th Republic of Korea Theatre Awards. Now that theatres have reopened in Hong Kong, we quickly assemble this limited Black Box run, determined that this fine Korean drama will arrive on the HKRep stage.
