Project Kite — Platform for Developing Original Scripts

  • 01.04.2023 - 30.09.2024

Let words fly, drawing golden strands across the sky, sparking a renaissance of original plays


There are so many different styles of contemporary theatre, each to its own aesthetics. But the Hong Kong Repertory Theatre staunchly believes a fine script must contain deeply thoughtful content, with the potential to be realised on stage. This is the artistic keystone of our company.
It is hard to write a good script, and we count our lucky stars when we encounter a fine script that is local and original. In the past, the HKRep had established numerous programmes to nurture local, original plays—Script Development Scheme, The Open Platform, Playwright’s Lab, and Project Alchemist—all of which delivered positive results. In order to encourage and discover even more creative talents, we embark on the “Project Kite” this season based on “Life’s creases and folds”, with an open call for Chinese-language scripts. We’ll select up to 20 scripts for reading, then pick the top five! Winners not only receive cash prizes, but they will also be invited to participate in a six-month playwriting workshop hosted by HKRep Artistic Director Poon Wai Sum. A fully-fledged script or two may even be included in a future HKRep season!
