WestK x Reframe Theatre
Post Office in Hell – The Origin
Early Bird Period (15%off): 12-26 JUN 2024

The second in a series of theatre experiences adapted from Hong Kong author Westwingmoon’s online novel Hell Post Office

Post Office in Hell – The Origin is a new collaboration between novelist Westwingmoon and playwright-director Yan Pat-to, that revisits the story that opened with Post Office in Hell (Part 1) in March this year.

 

The new, stand-alone theatre production tells the story of postman Nam Mun-leung – an individual gifted with the ability to travel between worlds and deliver letters to loved ones in the afterlife. As he journeys back and forth between the living and the dead, Nam witnesses the remorse of his clients. Forced to confront his own personal issues, he navigates how to save himself, his family and his significant other.

In this brand-new project by Reframe Theatre, ‘Postwriters’ Gathering’ is a platform fusing online theatre and literature. Greenizmstory, Gaakyoung, West_wingm, Iphoneman, and Chingceciii would gather here instead of writing from home. They chat about literature, theatre, art and life. It is an art salon of 21st century. Starting from 9pm, June 14, 2023, ‘Postwriters’ Gathering’ will be shown once every two weeks.

At the same time, Reframe Theatre is adapting three novels: "A Haunted VR Conference," a horror VR theatre experience by Greenizmstory exploring the dark side of humans’ nature; "The Goddess," an immersive theatrical adaptation of iphoneman's best-selling novel experiencing love and solitude in different spaces; "Post Office of the Hell", a poignant adaptation of the famous work by West_wingm delving into the laughter and tears of life and death.
