No Exit Hong Kong

No Exit

No Exit is an original Cantonese translation and recontextualisation of Sartre’s No Exit into a modern Hong Kong setting – a Karaoke bar. We created it as a rehearsed reading at We Draman studios in San Po Kong, and the original run was from the 10th-13th November 2014. The reading was staged with blocking and lighting, with a post-show talk every night with the audience.

No Exit Dress Rehearsal

Alfie’s photos from the dress rehearsal of No Exit. Like me, Alfie does many things… this time he translated the play, did the graphic design, and took the photos.

No More No Exit

No Exit has finished as quickly as it started. We managed a full house every night, which was wonderful and unexpected. It was a very good experience to have a post-show discussion every night and hear a lot of different opinions and questions from different audiences. I’m sure this will be very helpful when we come to stage it fully.

No Exit Last Day of Rehearsals

Photos by the talented Alfie Leung (also the translator and graphic designer for No Exit). Everything has come together very quickly and we’re already opening the show tomorrow. It’s running from 10-13 December at 8pm at We Draman, and it’s a rehearsed reading with a post-show talk. It’s definitely towards the more active end of the rehearsed-reading spectrum, with blocking, lights, sound, costume, props etc.

No Exit Reading, First Rehearsal

No Exit First Rehearsal Photos

We started rehearsals for the rehearsed reading of No Exit that I’m directing (new translation into Cantonese by Alfie Leung, produced by We Draman). Here are some photos from the first rehearsal – by Mag Tong, Tang Wai Kit and Michelle Li, with apologies for not teaching them how to use the strangely configured focus buttons on my camera. The show is on very soon, from the 10th-13th December.

No Exit

I’ll be directing a rehearsed reading of a new Cantonese translation of No Exit, which will be on at the start of December. The translation is by Alfie Leung (as is the design for the above image) and it’s being put on through We Draman.
