Perilous Mouth’s Theatre Presents:

The City That Never Sleeps

Written by various writers based in Hong Kong and devised by company. 

 

Inspired by Cora Bissett’s ‘Whatever Gets You Through the Night’ which was a ‘Vital Spark’ production at ‘The Arches’, in Glasgow (June 2012), based on Scotland between the hours of midnight and 4am. There is something magical about these lucid hours that I wanted to explore and felt Hong Kong, being a 24 hour city, was the perfect setting. It was a collage of 24 hour arcades, bedrooms, kitchens, rooftops, clubs and the sleepless souls who inhabit them during those hours. The scenes (and some of the music) were devised in rehearsal or written by local Hong Kong writers.

Directed by Fiona Mackinnon. Produced by Clare Stearns and Paul Cabrelli.
