The Professor Poster

The Professor by Candace Chong, winner of four Drama Awards, is one of her rare works set in a campus environment. The play examines the discrepancy between the moral high ground claimed by university education and the conflicting layers of reality. Last year's premiere was met by enthusiastic acclaims, even the standing areas were completely sold out. It generated widespread media coverage, and sparked off new debates across the society and poignant reflection upon the education system.

The story follows Lucretia, one of the last students to take the A-Level exam. Her grades turn out to be lower than expected, so she chooses the Faculty of Philosophy as a stepping stone for switching to a more "desirable" subject. The strategically-minded young woman is completely pre-occupied with the thoughts of a good GPA as her ticket to a "better" department, until she meets a professor who vows to develop his students' critical thinking ability and Jeremy, a senior student also known as the Prince of Social Activism. When Jeremy is arrested in a campaign, he is forced to take a stance between reality and ideals. A string of heated debates on the notions of "teaching" and "receiving" also follows suit.
