Synopsis:

No Parking On Odd Days and The Coffin Is Too Big For The Hole are two of late theatre doyen Kuo Pao Kun's most famous monologues. Both works have been staged in English and Mandarin numerous times since they were written in the mid-1980s. In Dialects & Dialectics, Nelson Chia – the artistic director of Nine Years Theatre – works with actors Hang Qian Chou and Tay Kong Hui to explore the cultural sentiments and grassroots sensibilities of these plays by staging them in Chinese dialects. Come catch this double-bill showcase performed in Cantonese and Teochew. Chinese and English surtitles are provided.

《单日不可停车》及《棺材太大洞太小》是已故戏剧大师郭宝崑两部广为人知的独角戏。自80年代中写成以来,两部作品数次以英语及华语呈献过。通过"两方各言",九年剧场艺术总监谢燊杰导演将和演员韩乾畴及郑光辉一起创作,以方言演出来探索这两部作品里头的文化情怀与基层情感。勿错过这个以粤语及潮语呈献的双场演出。附中英文字幕。
