Papa《爸爸》
A sketch on family that will bring you home for dinner

Papa, a watch-maker.

Years ago, on the first day of school, he sent his boy off into the classroom. The child cried his lungs out, as he turned away firmly hiding tears rolling down his cheek. Today, his son and daughter-in-law hand-in-hand, together with him, as they arrived at the elderly’s home. He looked at them longingly; as they turned away firmly with a sigh of relief.

It is about old and young; forgetting and remembering; encounter and departure; it is about Hong Kong and home; it is about you and me.

Reviews

“I enjoyed it greatly. I loved the embodiment of each emotion.”

“No words to explain, just amazing.”

“I like how the emotions are realistically projected and it is completely natural.”

“First time leaving the theatre in tears as I am totally moved! I am out of words to describe how great their acting is, you just can’t tell these old people are played by young actors. It’s really hard to believe they don’t have a performing arts background. Excellent cast!”

“The scene transitions and actors changing between characters are just flawless. Expressive acting reaches the bottom of my heart”

“Makes me think of my dad. I can’t wait to give him a hug!”

“It’s warm but not too emotional. Feel good watching it.”

“Thank you for bringing a simple story alive and it is absolutely well performed. It makes my daughter laugh and it makes me cry”
