Young Theatre Makers is a bilingual learning scheme aimed at secondary school students. It focuses on the process of analysing a play, understanding a script, discussing with a partner school and creating a staged reading in front of an audience.
This programme also aims to forge links between neighbouring schools in select locations across Hong Kong. Four groups of secondary school students across the region will be given the opportunity to work on a specific text and to engage in discussion and share their work with each other.
Due to the pandemic, a blended mode of learning will be adopted so that the workshop and the showcase can take place either face-to-face or online.

Tanya’s parents are getting a divorce. They told her on her birthday. Her father is having a baby with another woman, so they are dividing up everything they own, including Tanya. Tanya is distraught. She stops going to school and becomes fixated on trying to get her parents back together, but nothing works. They have moved on, but she hasn’t.
Andrey is Tanya’s best friend. His parents have been divorced twice, and are threatening to get married for the third time, which is the last thing he wants. He doesn’t want to play a part in their soap opera for the rest of his life. He wants them to move on more than anything. Andrey and Tanya have two very different experiences of love and divorce, but they find a way to support each other and give each other hope.
