The set-up was fine but the characterization charmless and the narrative resolution unconvincing. Best of the rest for me, at least were: And, of course, the theatre itself.

And, of course, the theatre itself. His reluctance to commit for fear of fatherhood was counterpointed by longing messages on her ansaphone from some other boyfriend. Best of the rest for me, at least were: As of the Wednesday show, which the editor attended the show ran a little less than three hours. With the first play up at 8pm well, a few minutes later, in fact , and a 15 minute interval, the last play closed at Most of the pieces are significantly longer than their targeted 10 minutes. What distinguishes a playlet from a play? Due to venue restrictions with time constraints some edits may have been made to this production that may not been present when the reviewer attended. Why so many budding dramatists should wish to remain anonymous is a mystery — all the more so when the quality of the writing — the dialogue, set-up and structure for each piece - is consistently accomplished and engaging.

The set-up was fine but the characterization charmless and the narrative resolution unconvincing. But those who come to it in the expectation that there will be rough along with smooth should not be disappointed. With these caveats, I commend the show to anyone interested in exploring the contemporary human condition through the works and plays of their contemporaries here in Hong Kong.
