A Dream Like a Dream
28.07.2019 - 25.08.2019

An epic Chinese masterpiece returns to Hong Kong after a 17-year hiatus
A glorious journey in search of the source of life unfolds in dream and in reality

“In a story, someone had a dream. In that dream, someone told a story.”

The story begins with a recently graduated doctor and his terminally ill “Patient No. 5”, whose tale encompasses complicated relationships and emotions. The plot unfolds across time and space, alternating between reality and dreamscape. After a journey through a life, the story returns to where it all began.

A Dream Like A Dream is one of the most talked about Chinese-language theatrical innovations. Conceived by acclaimed theatre director Stan Lai, the play creates a dreamlike experience with a four-sided stage, revolving seating design and an eight-hour performance duration. In 2002, HKRep presented this epic in a sold-out run. In the interim, A Dream Like A Dream has touched the hearts of theatre fans in Beijing, Shanghai, Taipei, Singapore and many other cities.

A Dream Like A Dream received three accolades at the 12th Hong Kong Drama Awards: Best Overall Performance, Best Costume Design and Best Supporting Actor (Tragedy / Drama). After 17 years, we stage a new production with guest artists Louisa So, three-time Hong Kong Drama Award Best Actor Poon Chan Leung and Cecilia Choi, who played the female lead in ViuTV’s acclaimed mini-series My Very Short Marriage.
