About The Hostages

“The Hostages” originally titled “Hello Rob” is a modern day classic play, the first of many Gentry Comedies by director and playwright Rao Xiao-Zhi. Winning critics and also The Chinese National drama culture award, it has since toured all over Asia. The play sets the tone for the sarcastic and black humour that is Rao Xiao-Zhi’s Gentry Comedy. The play concentrates on the 6 leads, exchanging roles as robbers and hostages, audiences can easily find their own reflections though these characters. As the actors deliver comedy, philosophy and sarcasm to expose the societies’ harshness, and the pressures everyone faces thought out the two hour performance, with an unexpected ending that leaves audiences ponders for meanings.
