Black Monday Poster


Are you living your dream? Six dark-humoured, interwoven tales about handling the harshness of reality.

One morning, a woman is driving to work. She is listening to the radio playing "On a Clear Day", while thinking that life could not get any worse when a body suddenly lands in front of her car. She is shaken. However, her initial shock soon gives way to selfish anger as she begins to blame the "jumper" for disrupting her schedule.

And so the story begins, 24 hours before death. On this "Black Monday", a group of people struggle with their jobs. They work to live, but should work really stop them from living? Who will survive in the end?

Following The Wild Boar performed at the 2012 Hong Kong Arts Festival, dramatist Candace Chong and director Olivia Yan team up again in Black Monday to reveal the negative influence of "making a living" and to reflect on our attitude towards life. A satire that will strike a chord with many Hongkongers today.
