 A Life

"A Life" is a follow-up to "Da", two plays by Hugh Leonard adapted for the Hong Kong stage by Theatre Space. It takes a look at a day in the life of Desmond Drumm, a secondary character in "Da" and a self-important man who has driven away all friends with his ascorbic tongue. The background to the story is set in Pokfulam in Island South.

As people visit with Drumm the old community where he grew up and witness how he picks the pieces of his past, they slowly get under the skin of this headstrong yet vulnerable old man.
 
On learning that he is suffering from a terminal illness, he decides to pay a visit to his friends, Mary and Lar, a couple he has known since they were very young but whom he has not spoken to for years.

It is followed by a second visit, this time with his wife Dolly. By taking another look at their relationships, Drumm takes stock of his past, or in his own words, tries to "total his sums, to demand an audit to know what he amounts to". In so doing, he recalls two evenings that have left indelible memories in him: a date with Mary in the park some forty years ago, and his first public speech.
 
The ‘present’ is built upon the ‘past’, and that is how Drumm sees himself in the elusive and highly-subjective illusory past.
