The Hong Kong Jockey Club Community Project Grant: stART Up Community Arts Project 2023 Playwriting Programme: Story Weavers “This is Our Neighbourhood” Stage Readings

This March, join us for a stage reading performance of three selected scripts created as part of our Story Weavers playwriting programme.

Hong Kong is home to an eclectic mix of individuals and communities from all over the world, each with their own culture and identity. This year’s Story Weavers playwriting programme brought together eight young playwrights to write scripts inspired by the community stories of their home districts. Working with stage actor and playwright Melody Yue they explored themes of community and cultural symbolism.

The stage reading performance runs for 60 minutes including a Q&A section. Free admission, suitable for people of all ages. To register for free tickets, please visit here.
