Forever Silence

  • Hong Kong City Hall Theatre
  • 20.05.2017 - 04.06.2017

Playwright Cheung Tat Ming returns after an eight-year hiatus

To love or not to love, to suffer or not to suffer — decisions at life’s precipice


Out of the blue, Elis, a best-selling novelist famous for riveting bodice-rippers, decides to join a nunnery. This move surprises her family, publisher and readers, even Buddhist masters.

Since she has built her reputation on daring subjects that challenge conventional morals, her rescinding the material world is all the more bewildering. Some support her, while others are in stern opposition, thus creating a controversy. Everyone is keen to discover the real reasons behind this decision. During the process, many details gradually surface — from her domestic woes to complicated love life, from the emotional struggles of a creative artist to a secret concerning life and death.

Cheung Tat Ming returns to the Hong Kong Repertory Theatre after eight years (Beautiful Connection) to create and direct Forever Silence, with Louisa So in the role of Elis.
