Shanghai x Hong Kong Experimental Arts Tech Theatre. A Cantonese dark comedy

Left Unsaid

“The Buddha said: you may not say, you may not say. Saying aloud is a mistake.” — The Nirvana Sutra

Many things in life are better left unsaid.

 

The story begins with a neurosurgeon and his neurologist wife, who cannot communicate with each other but converse every moment of the day. One day, the visit of an old school friend reveals a secret in the family. Could the truth be told? Or is it better “left unsaid”?

 

The four characters in the play experience everyday routine as well as the impermanence of life. Among lies, envy and alienation, what unspeakable secrets are hidden? After three years of a pandemic, have relationships taken an indescribable turn?

 

Adapted from the original play Left Unsaid by Nick Yu Rong-Jun, director of Shanghai Dramatic Arts Centre
