In the war torn Angola, a senior surgeon conducts endless operations and faces countless casualties every day.  Patients come and go, sometimes he could save them, more often he couldn’t.  He begins to cast doubt on his decision to be a war doctor…

In a bureaucratic medical school, a student is increasingly frustrated by the incompetent professors and heartless colleagues.  The prospect of becoming the kind of doctor he wants looks grim…

The bewildered two bumped into each other in a mortuary.  A heated debate on the meaning of life and the pursuit of ideals ensued.

Time to have a second thought?

“Alive in the Mortuary” won the Best Script Award in the 12th Hong Kong Drama Awards.  The play was first staged by Chung Ying Theatre in 2012.  This performance is a revival of the play.

Performed in Cantonese
