"The Diary of Song"
21.10.2017 - 05.11.2017
Title Sponsor

Paul Poon wields his magic yet again, and Lee Chun Chow displays his innumerable talents
Together they conspire to uncover the confidential diary of the tiger-vanquishing hero

“What’s the difference between cat and mouse if the cat doesn’t catch a mouse?”
Everyone knows that Wu Song defeated a tiger. But who knew Wu Song also kept a diary?

Wizard playwright Paul Poon singles out Wu Song from the Chinese classic novel The Water Margin, using a comic approach to construct the character anew and Lee Chun Chow — renowned as an “actor’s actor” in Hong Kong — plays the title role.

The story begins with Wu Song fighting a tiger in Jingyang Pass, tracing the psychological process affecting his actions, accentuating the dilemma between idealism and reality. Wu being trapped in an emotional rut and his feelings of despair can easily be applied to our modern lives.

“Our generation lives in a time that controls us. All of us have a bitter tale to tell…”
