Hong Kong Players present an evening of two hilarious plays presented by two directors and a wonderful cast in the McAulay Theatre, Arts Centre Wan Chai.
HK Players presents a double bill of hilarious one-act comedies. In The Virtuous Burglar by Dario Fo, a burglar is discovered when the owner of the flat returns unexpectedly with his mistress. The situation turns to farce when the owner’s wife arrives and the burglar is forced to pretend the mistress is his wife. In Alan Ayckbourn’s A Cut in the Rates, Miss Pickhart visits the illusionist Ratchet on official Town Hall business, and she discovers a sinister secret. It seems one of his magic tricks may have gone horribly wrong!
It’s that time of year again – oh yes it is! That fabulous musical extravaganza, the mini-panto is back. Based on Hong Kong Players’ Christmas panto, The Snow Queen which was staged during the 2016 Christmas season, the mini panto is a musical entertainment starring seven young people with Down Syndrome who will get up onstage to share their talent and their endless enthusiasm with audiences.
This year’s event marks the third year running that Hong Kong Players is joining forces with the Hong Kong Down Syndrome Association to create a magical mini panto. The first two shows have both been joyous occasions in a room full of love and this year’s promises more of the same – with stand-out performances and songs including True Colours and Ice Ice Baby.
Last year we stepped into the magical world of Cinderella and this year we are heading to the Snow Kingdom, where all is dismal and cold – and it’s not just down to the weather! The Snow King is unhappy and he wants everyone else to be unhappy too. Come along and find out who will save the day by making the Snow King smile again and letting the sun come out!

by Oscar Wilde
Wilde’s classic play was first performed in London in 1895, and has become one of the best-loved comedies in the English canon. Curtain Call Productions and Hong Kong Players are delighted to bring this trivial comedy, under the inspired direction of Jodi Gilchrist, to the Hong Kong stage. Two young gentlemen living in 1890’s England use the same pseudonym (“Ernest”) on the sly so that they can avoid boring social commitments. This is fine until they both fall in love with women also using that name for their devices, leading to a clever comedy of mistaken identities viagra prix en pharmacie paris. Wilde described the play as “exquisitely trivial, a delicate bubble of fancy and it has its philosophy: we should treat all the trivial things seriously, and all the serious things of life with sincere and studied triviality.”

Hong Kong Players present…..
Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
One of America’s greatest plays takes us into the home of George and Martha, a
aged college professor and his fiery wife locked in a battle of the sexes. Inviting younger
couple Nick and Honey to the drinks party from hell, things quickly take a darker turn in
Edward Albee’s tragicomedy. As the alcohol flows, so does the wit, invective and spite.
Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is directed by Jodi Gilchrist and stars Kath O’Connor, Henry
Coombs, Michelle Edwards and Matthew Rawcliffe.
