Serial No.: 1920(1)LP
Price: @HK$150

A compilation of three recent scripts by our Artistic Director Anthony Chan. As a tribute to Cao Yu’s masterpiece Thunderstorm, Formula of the Thunderstorm depicts a playwright who shares an “intertwining relationship” with Cao’s Thunderstorm characters. A Bowlful of Kindness is nothing less than the 1960s’ kaleidoscope, in which one will feel the warmth and neighbourhood spirit of fellow Hongkongers.  On the surface, Footprints in the Snow is about the “bromance” and the complicated relationship between a Chinese opera writer and an actor who plays a female role, but in essence it touches those who treasure the playwright’s talents.  Production stills of the three scripts are included in this compilation.
