“In a story, someone had a dream. In that dream, someone told a story.”
The story begins with a recently graduated doctor and his terminally ill “Patient No.5”, whose tale compasses complicated relationships and emotions. The plot unfolds across time and space, alternating between reality and dreamscape. After a journey through a life, the story returns to where it all began.
A Dream Like a Dream is one of the most talked about Chinese-language theatrical innovations. Conceived by acclaimed theatre director Stan Lai, the play creates a dreamlike experience with a four-sided stage, revolving seating design and an eight-hour performance duration. In 2002, HKRep presented this epic in a sold-out run. This summer, after 17 years, HKRep presents a new production with guest artist Louisa So, three-time Hong Kong Drama Award Best Actor Poon Chan-leung and Cecilia Choi.
A Dream Like a Dream is co-presented by West Kowloon.
