In a world of injustice, wrong is right and right is wrong

Fong Tong Geng, Guangdong’s most prominent advocate, is known for his greed and malice. But at the height of his career heaven deals him a blow and his reputation and wealth are lost overnight. Haunted by the bitter ghost of a childhood friend, Fong fights his way back to the magistrate to right his wrongs and redeem himself as the champion of the common man.
The Impossible Trial - a musical is commissioned by Freespace, co-presented and co-produced with HKRep. The preview run in 2019 received critical acclaim. Since then, the creative team has devoted time and energy in crafting the fully-fledged production. The world premiere of The Impossible Trial is poised to breathe new life for local original musicals.
“Told through the beautiful songs of golden songwriting duo Leon Ko and Chris Shum, Cheung Fei Fan’s story is unusually effective and captivating – a treat for the eyes and the ears!”
── Rupert Chan, Hong Kong Economic Journal

The Impossible Trial is a major original musical that brings together Hong Kong’s top creative minds and performers. With music by Leon Ko, lyrics by Chris Shum and Cheung Fei Fan’s script developed over three years, we can expect a great production.”
── Kearen Pang, Performing Artist / Creator

“Carefully written and beautifully constructed, The Impossible Trial blends reason, sentiment and complex character relationships. Powerfully dramatic and highly entertaining, the storyline is both logical and unexpected.”
── Sunny Chan, Film writer / Director
