The Open Platform: Ashes
29.01.2021 - 07.02.2021

There was a time when I believed we could change the world

Tracy returns at last, co-founding an independent news organisation with like-minded colleagues with faith in freedom of information, providing the public with objective and unbiased news.

Labour strife breaks out in a public works construction site. As Tracy delves deep in her investigation, she realises the closer she gets to the truth, the more precarious her situation. She can’t forget the past; friendships are broken and people part ways. All alone, can she safeguard her own convictions?

Playwright Cyrus Lam’s Beyond the Corner, a story about youthful ideals and a university new media platform’s rise and fall, has been featured in the HKRep’s Open Platform. Lam’s second work selected by The Open Platform is a script that again delves into ideals and beliefs.
