‘She’ left Hong Kong and has become the host of the programme ‘Goldfish of London’ at the Radio of London Hong Kongers. She shares stories and memories of Hong Kong. Suddenly, Yan Pat To, the writer/director of the show, makes a phone call to the programme and shares his new work……

A Poem in Jail is inspired by a bed-board with a love poem found in a women’s prison. This groundbreaking immersive production features artists across disciplines including Yan Pat To (theatre), Kingsley Ng (media installation), Adrian Yeung (video artist), Jass Leung (dramaturg) and Chow Yiu Fai (lyric Artist).  A Poem in Jail (in progress) – Happy Together Till the Next Century Comes carries a fragment of the time and space of the immersive theatre A Poem in Jail. This fragment is a short episode not revealed in the show. A Poem in Jail will premiere in 2021, so please stay tuned to the Tai Kwun website for the latest announcement.
