May 35—Performance and Discussion
***Due to extended on-campus class suspension at HKU, the following programme is postponed. Please stay tuned for further announcement.***




Titled May 35, a term used by Chinese internet users to circumvent censorship of posts about the June 4 – the date that must not be named and cannot be searched online in China. This play is the story of a pair of ageing parents who lost their son to the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests. Such pain is felt by the parents of the Tiananmen victims, reflecting on their right to openly hold a vigil for their lost ones and their desire for the Chinese government to acknowledge and investigate into the incident.

This is part of the May 35 School Tour 2020. The playwright Candace Chong will join the post-performance discussion.
