Love à la Zen

  • Hong Kong City Hall Theatre
  • 16.07.2022 - 31.07.2022
Celebrated playwright Raymond To’s award-winning masterpiece 
Two entangled couples search for true love à la Zen 
After years of dating Jing, Sau disappears. Tired of the mundane world, he enters a monastery where his friend Master Chi Yuen presides. At a church wedding, a bridegroom Ching falters in his vows, provoking his bride Mei Na to call off the ceremony. As Sau brings Ching along to study with Chi Yuen, Jing refuses to accept her lover’s change of heart, takes Mei Na to the temple, even flirts with Chi Yuen! Can these characters find inner peace when a monk is embroiled in the romantic skirmishes of two couples? 
Love à la Zen premiered in 1996 and was revived in 1998. Now 24 years later, the HKRep revisits Raymond To’s iconic work. The audience will delight in the play’s sagacious humour and discover some wisdoms about love and impermanence!
