Reliving Hong Kong’s true colours
through the fragrance of rice and the kindness of people

Premiered last year, A Bowlful of Kindness struck an emotional chord in the city with its heart-warming portrayal of compassion and goodwill of the 60s, through the moving stories about neighbourhood communities and the spirit of ordinary people striving to improve their situations.

In a time where the goal of all hard work was a humble wish to make ends meet, this play tells the poignant story of Hong Kong people’s collective struggle in a time of fascinating social changes. Using ordinary everyday objects such as radios and rice cookers, Artistic Director Anthony Chandelicately distils the kindness and goodwill we all dearly miss. As the steam rises from the kitchen of Fragrant Bistro, a bowl of fragrant rice takes the audience on a nostalgic stroll down the memory lane.
