A school scandal that’s tricky to untangle.
Where’s the line between emotions and reason under the rules?

Soon after she starts her job, a new principal establishes a host of new rules, upsetting her staff and her students. Gossip swirls that the new principal and vice principal are at loggerheads, poisoning the atmosphere. An accident involving a student leads to the popular vice principal’s transfer. This angers the students, who demand that the authorities officially explain the circumstances and administer justice. A campus crisis is about to explode. Exams are looming, yet a student movement is about to unfold. How should the principal, vice principal, teachers, school board, student council and students handle the crisis? Can the truth be accepted? 
Principle originated from our Reader’s Theatre. It came to life on stage in our Black Box and was later produced at the Hong Kong City Hall. Earlier this year, the production even travelled to Singapore’s Huayi Festival, where tickets for all five shows at the Esplanade — Theatres on the Bay were sold out in record time. In the intervening years, the script was retooled and refined, with powerful dialogue and plotlines generating tremendous resonance, inspiring the audience to delve deeper into the issues. Nominated for the 2017 Hong Kong Theatre Libre for Best Script, Principle was selected as an “Excellent Production” at the 2018 Hong Kong Drama Awards, and Ko Hon Man (as the vice principal) won the 2019 Shanghai One Drama Awards as Best Actor. Principle has consistently garnered praise and critical acclaim at every turn.
