VÁCLAV HAVEL's

The Garden Party (North-East Village Version)
by Theatre Horizon as part of the 4th Hong Kong People's Fringe Festival

To secure a better future for his son, the father arranges an appointment with an influential official who cannot show up because he is going to a garden party. The father then sends his son there to find him. There the son meets someone from the Liquidation Office and the Inauguration Services. He is engaged in a bureaucratic conversation quite void of meaning. The absurd scenes take place in one of Hong Kong's disappearing back garden, the North-east New Territories.
