Desert the Dangling Cat
25.02.2012 - 10.03.2012

“Dangling” – an old local idiom about being stuck, unable to move forward or backward

How does a production that’s not quite a failure (yet far from a success) win applause?


A veteran actor unable to remember his lines precipitates the cancellation of a production. On the night of the originally planned premiere, he turns up waiting for curtain time while the rest of the cast and crew have already been disbanded. Box office staff is handling returns while only the stage assistant, director, cleaning staff and one member of the audience are inside the theatre. Does a performance that’s destined to fail have a chance for rebirth?


A second audience member enters, breaking the status quo.


Chan Wai Hung’s humorous and suspenseful script addresses how people handle themselves in unusual situations, extending the conventional idea of “theatre.” Director Chan Cheuk Wai has received critical acclaim even since his graduation; he brings new elements of the absurd into the theatre.
