Double Bill: No Parking On Odd Days & The Coffin Is Too Big For The Hole
By Nine Years Theatre

Director: Nelson Chia
Playwright: Kuo Pao Kun
Starring: Hang Qian Chou (No Parking On Odd Days) and Tay Kong Hui (The Coffin Is Too Big For The Hole).

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 this double bill, 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.

This programme was originally part of The Vault: Dialects & Dialectics, a programme of Centre 42. It was first performed in May 2017 at Centre 42, created/directed by Nelson Chia.

Performed in Cantonese and Teochew with English and Chinese surtitles.
