The Heart of Growth
Children's author A Nong writes warm, uplifting tales full of youthful vigour and enterprise. In his book, 濃情集, he tells heartfelt stories of growing up in Hong Kong, enabling different generations of students to identify with them and turning the work into a local cultural treasure.
This music theatre adaptation focuses on four of the book's short stories, taking school and family as the main plot while teachers, family members, and classmates all put in appearances among the characters. Live music also has a vital role in transferring the evocative content from page to stage.
Stories are adapted from A Nong's book - 濃情集, authorised by Sun Ya Publications (HK) Ltd.
