The second show from small-venue heroes Brave Heart Theatre is an original piece of theater from Maryjane Alejo, an actor-musician-singer and co-founder of Manila agitprop theater group Tag-Ani. She's devised a series of improvised stories which provide different perspectives on our city’s democracy debate, based on the life of a domestic helper and her employer. What’s more, it’s played to music. “Singing In the Rain”-esque umbrella twirling? Too soon,...

Aurora Theatre brings us another romp that straddles the line of PC with a courtroom comedy that satirizes... pretty much everyone and everything. Nicole Garbellini directs this play by David Mamet, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of "Glengarry Glen Ross," about the court proceedings of a deceitful Jewish chiropractor, his anti-Semitic attorney, a gay prosecutor and his disruptive love life, and a Middle East peace conference taking place at the same time.


Shakespeare's Globe theater comes back to the Hong Kong stage with the classic comedy: "A Midsummer Night's Dream." You might have read this in school, but this is a chance to see the play as it was intended to be seen.

Jane Archibald plays the titular cat (sorry ladies, no sexy Antonio Banderas voiceovers here), who with the help of Dame Trifle and Alice, take down Mayor Boris and the Evil Queen of the Rats. It's always guaranteed to be a sold-out run, so get your tickets quick!

Dr Vicki Ooi's youth theater AFTEC has teamed up with Michael Brown, the movement artist behind the West End production of "War Horse" and last year's Oscar-winning space epic "Gravity," to bring an all-new physical theater retelling the Greek myth "Jason and the Argonauts." The young hero Jason was stripped of his claim to the throne by the usurper King Pelias. 20 years later, upon returning to take back what is his, Pelias makes a deal with Jason, to...
