An illusory yet tangible encounter
where reality and dreamscape merge
 
“A Thrilling voyage in discovery of a spiritual landscape.” — Ingmar Bergman

 

The Stranger is bestowed with talent and riches, yet he finds himself all alone facing the void. As if predestined, he meets a married woman and they begin a torrid affair. But her husband has long been his sworn enemy. When all is said and done, does redemption or catastrophe await him? Told from the personal perspective, Road to Damascus chronicles a journey of self-discovery epitomising the struggle between man and fate, love, religion and his own ego, laying bare the protagonist’s ups and downs as he refuses to let himself go.
 
Swedish playwright August Strindberg originally made his name as a proponent of naturalism, but after a series of personal experiences, his style transformed and he became a pioneer of European Expressionism, adept at conjuring a fantastic milieu with monologues that alienate, in settings where imagination and dreamscape are suspended in the grey area between truth and falsehood. Strindberg’s theatrical approach in plumbing the human psyche influenced the development of theatre throughout the entire 20th century.
 
Fredric Mao directs this production with HKRep veteran Chris Sun in the role of the Stranger, and the cast of Road to Damascus includes guest artists Louisa So and Amy Wu. The local theatre scene eagerly anticipates this Hong Kong premiere that will surely push the boundary of our horizons.
