About

This is the first stage play produced by Jingying Entertainment·Comedy Academy, which is adapted on the basis of Georges Feydeau’s classical work and directed by the Hong Kong comedy master Jim Chim Sui-man.

Director's Note

This time I select a dozen young performers because they have the explosive power and energy unique to the youth, as well as unsophisticated naivety. I wish to take advantage of such naivety and energy to create an unprecedented form of comedy.

We all need love. Our life is in vain without love!

Jim Chim Sui-man Director

Born in Hong Kong, Jim Chim Sui-man majored in Theatre and Drama in Hong Kong. After graduation, he studied mimes under the tutelage of the famous British physical theater director David Glass. He was also invited to join a tour in Britain. Afterwards, he continuously visited the drama masters, and was successively instructed by masters in the United States, Germany, Denmark, Russia, Britain and other countries and regions. Later, he studied performance skills and accepted physical training under the tutelage of Philippe Gaulier and Monika Pagneux, both prestigious French performance trainers. The concept of “PIP”—“Pleasure, Imagination and Play” is not only his life philosophy, but also the ultimate origin of his performance and creation.
