EVENT DESCRIPTION

A 100-year-old restaurant caught in financial and management woes
Life’s many tastes unfold with every little change

After the owner of Fujude—the most renowned duck restaurant in Beijing—retires from ill-health, his two lacklustre sons run the business to the ground. In comes Lu Mengshi who turns Fujude around within a few years. When the brothers witness the rising tide, they vow to fight Lu in regaining their rightful share!

The Top Restaurant, which launched the career of former HKRep resident playwright He Jiping, is hailed as a theatrical masterpiece of contemporary realism, winning such accolades as the Ministry of Culture’s Wenhua Prize and Cao Yu Theatre Award. The Top Restaurant premiered at the Beijing People’s Art Theatre in 1988, then travelled to Hong Kong and toured Europe, United States, Japan, South Korea, Singapore and Taiwan. It was subsequently adapted as an acclaimed TV drama.

Following the mainland production of Deling and Cixi, director Roy Szeto chooses a modern approach to this He Jiping classic, welcoming former HKRep principal actor and Golden Horse “Best Leading Actor” Tse Kwan Ho in the cast. This dream team of playwright-director-actor promises to be a hot item on the theatre scene!
