INTRODUCTION

When language fails us, music comes in

Following the multi-award-winning film A Simple Life and the critically acclaimed HKAF theatre production The Amahs, Roger Lee brings audiences another heart-warming original story: the extraordinary journey of two youngsters with special needs who unlock their hidden talents and find fulfilment through music. A vivid portrayal of student life in a Hong Kong secondary school from the perspective of those in need, Always by Your Side reveals how the younger generation breaks through the expectations set by teachers and “monster” parents. 

Singer-songwriter Endy Chow joins hands with rising stars Yau Hawk-sau and jamie zhang in this music theatre production. Together with experienced actors, a live band and an ensemble of talented performers, they will move you to tears and laughter.


Commissioned and Produced by the Hong Kong Arts Festival
Performed in Cantonese with English and Chinese surtitles
