Principle (2018)
09.11.2018 - 25.11.2018

An intellectual journey in quest of the meaning of education
As a campus crisis is about to explode

Soon after she started her job, a new principal establishes a host of new rules. Her vigorous approach upsets the vice principal, teachers and students as gossip swirls around that the new principal and the vice principal are at loggerheads. Later, an upsetting rumor rears its ugly head: the vice principal, having served for almost three decades, will be transferred. This piece of news angers the student body. A campus crisis is about to explode, as parents and the school’s board are also hurled into the vortex. How will the school management respond? Is education concerned more with following strict rules or passing on values and heritage? Is the school’s reputation more important than differentiating right from wrong?

When Principle premiered at the HKRep Black Box in 2017, all 14 performances were sold out. Not only did Principle garner praise, but HKRep received numerous requests to remount this play. This season, we invite Fong Chun Kit to direct a new production with a new cast, as we embark again on a journey pondering the true meaning of education and justice.
