Plays for Young People aims at nurturing local translators and bringing quality plays for young people to Hong Kong through translating the plays in Chinese or English. After the symposium and workshop in March 2018, the emerging translators of the programme worked under the mentorship of three veteran translators to translate six overseas plays written by playwrights from the new silk route.

The reader’s theatre will present an exclusive & stimulating preview on excerpts reading of winning translation work of six plays with inspiring themes:
