"It Won't Be long Now" : the 6th in the series of "Sham Shui Po Stories"

It Won’t Be Long Now, a solo show set in 1940s Hong Kong, follows the experiences of British prisoners of war incarcerated in the Sham Shui Po Barracks by the Japanese. They are our guides to the world of the camps: the beatings, diseases, forced labour and deaths, but so too to the informal university, the furious gardening, the prison breaks and drag entertainment acts. It may just be that when you dance with death sitting in the front row, you dance with greater abandon. The show reveals the enduring humanity, will to survive and the dream for a better world that still exists when everything else has been stripped away. The Cantonese version of It Won’t Be Long Now on the other hand would be the story of Hong Kongers during the Japanese occupation of 3 years and 8 months.

The performance will take the form of two solos in a double bill performed by two well known dramatists, Bill Aitchison and Indy Lee Chun Leung.

Actor: Bill Aitchison, Indy Lee Chun Leung

English and Cantonese (with English and Chinese subtitles where appropriate)
