In times of turmoil
They lose their way, they struggle to survive, but they still have faith

“Everyone has the right to strive for a better life. I know I can, so there’s hope in living.”

This story takes place in Hong Kong and Guangzhou before 1949, with Cheng Sumei and Gui Yuxin as the core characters against the background of a banking family and two romantic entanglements.  In light of the civil war and social unrest, keenly aware that the family’s banking business is in danger of collapse, eldest son Zipei — concerned about the safety of family members — must make a decision whether to remain in Guangzhou or seek refuge in Hong Kong. His younger brother Zi’ang remains idealistic, ready to risk his life for country and society. In this chaotic era, men cannot cope with matters of the fate nor the heart…

Based on the 2013 novel by Dr. Leung Fung Yee, In Times of Turmoil is adapted by Chan Yiu Hung, who penned such early plays for the Hong Kong Repertory Theatre as Side Door and The Seven Wisemen of the Bamboo Grove. Chan returns to weave a story with fictitious characters against the backdrop of historical events, highlighting many types of bonds — between siblings, lovers, friends, extending into family and country — in this moving tale about yesteryears.
