Where and When

HK Rep Black Box Theatre
8/F, Sheung Wan Civic Centre
29 May -1 June 2013


Hong Kong Players, in association with HKRep, presented William Nicholson’s heartbreaking drama about the life of Narnia creator, C.S. Lewis. The play took West End audiences by storm in the late 1980s, and was the basis for the popular film starring Anthony Hopkins and Debra Winger.


The HK Players production received rave reviews from our audiences, and was an honour to be involved in!

McAulay Studo, Hong Kong Arts Centre
6-9 Mar 2013 8pm (and 2:30pm on 9 Mar)


A new adaptation of the iconic 1960s screen classic that portrays the seduction of a virginal graduate, Benjamin Braddock, by the icily feline Mrs. Robinson. Terry Johnson’s adaptation for the stage retains the Sixties California vibe while adding a searing new vitality and further sardonic humour to the mix. The stage is set for a scintillating and hilarious night of theatre.
