1894 Hong Kong Plague


Programme Description

The year is 1894, and Hong Kong is hit by the great plague of unknown origin. Tai Ping Shan Street, a neighbourhood inhabited mostly by Chinese residents, is an epicentre of the pandemic. Born into this extraordinary time, Huang Yan (Wong Wai Chi) has decided to entrust her own destiny to the people she believes in the most – perhaps her only hope for survival.

Adapted from true historical events, 1894 Hong Kong Plague – a Musical is co-written by Gerard Tsang and Anthony Chan, with Dr. Sam Lam at the helm as director, marking Dr. Lam’s third collaboration with HKRep following the critically-acclaimed production of Shakespeare’s Richard III. Employing a modern aesthetic approach, 1894 Hong Kong Plague transports the audience between the abstract and the representational to create a poignant contrast between these historical moments and our lives today, seeking new hope at the horizon amidst a time of chaos and despair, portraying the will and endurance to survive against all odds, as well as a determination not to be ravaged by society and circumstances.
