Encounters return in a subconscious dream
Along a journey of self-discovery

Fate emasculates. Where can we find the meaning of life in this mad, cruel world? The Stranger is bestowed with talent and riches, yet he finds himself all alone facing the void. As if predestined, he meets a married woman and they begin a torrid affair. But her husband has long been his sworn enemy. When all is said and done, does redemption or catastrophe await him? Told from the personal perspective, To Damascus chronicles a journey of self-discovery epitomizing the struggle between man and fate, love, religion and his own ego, laying bare the protagonist’s ups and downs as he refuses to let go of himself.

Swedish playwright August Strindberg was a pioneer of European Expressionism, adept at creating a fantastic milieu where monologue, imagination and dreamscape suspend in that grey area between reality and dreams, creating an illusion that stands between truth and untruth. Strindberg’s maverick spirit upended an entire generation’s creativity and aesthetics.

Fredric Mao directs this production with HKRep veteran Chris Sun in the role of the Stranger, and the cast of To Damascus, Part One includes guest artists Louisa So and Amy Wu. The local theatre scene eagerly anticipates this Hong Kong premiere that will surely push the boundary of our horizons.
