A Bowlful of Kindness
05.11.2015 - 08.11.2015

A beloved HKRep classic, staged for the 3rd time by popular demand
The fragrance of rice, the spirit of community and the memories under the Lion Rock
The most local of Hong Kong sentiment, the most heartfelt of collective memories

Premiered in 2012, staged again in Hong Kong and toured in Guangzhou and Shanghai in 2013, A Bowlful of Kindness is an original local production portraying the community spirit of Hong Kong society in the 1960s. Over 15,000 audience members have laughed and cried as the spirit of unity and hard work against all odds by Hong Kong people was rekindled on stage. In an era where the goal of all hard work was a humble wish to make ends meet, a bowl of rice reveals the kindness of people as well as the harsh reality. Through the heartwarming stories of everyday people, Hong Kong’s fascinating social changes, determination and entrepreneurial spirits are brought to the live stage all over again.

In addition to performances in Hong Kong for the third time, the play will also tour Beijing, bringing the Mainland audience a production of true Hong Kong flavour, through a bowlful of fragrant rice. In 2016, the opening celebration programme will be held in Beijing Tianqiao Arts Centre.
