Are you sick of the same old nights out in Soho? Then why not spend your evening taking in an awesome performance of the award-winning play, Doubt? There’s more to Hong Kong than cocktails and happy hour (although we can’t deny we’re big fans of both!).
Sweet and Sour Productions Limited is staging the Hong Kong premiere of this gripping drama, written by John Patrick Shanley. Expect to be wowed by stellar performances and a compelling storyline that’s so good it won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the Tony Award for Best Play and it’s been adapted into an Academy Award nominated film featuring the late Philip Seymour Hoffman and Meryl Streep… if it’s good enough for Hollywood, it’s good enough for us!
Set in a Catholic Church and school during the 60s in the Bronx, New York, the play explores issues of morality and truth, revealing how many things are not just black or white. When Sister James suspects wrongdoing from Father Flynn, suspicion and ambiguity arise – it will keep you on the edge of your seat, that’s for sure! We might crave a definitive answer but the views expressed throughout the play will leave you filled with doubt long after the curtain has fallen… very intriguing if we do say so ourselves.
Spice up your mid-week lull with this interesting and thought-provoking performance… and don’t forget to book tickets ASAP!
