Playwright Poon Wai-sum explores the fantasy and fakery of the real estate market, examining what the housing obsession means to densely-packed Hong Kong – all with a sharp eye and a sense of humor.

Three real estate agents compete to snare a pair of prospective home buyers. The husband and wife, who sell miniature mansions as memorials for the dead, are skeptical yet tempted after years of searching for the right apartment. Gradually, the agents switch from trying to outdo each other to working together to secure a sale.

Luxurious show flats spark dreams of a Chinese proverb about “gardens in the air.” Gorgeous views take your breath away and spacious rooms fill your imagination. But when the flat is finally yours. . .  

Since returning to Hong Kong from the US in the 1980s, veteran playwright Poon Wai-sum has written more than 50 scripts and initiated Hong Kong’s annual Playwright Scheme to support aspiring writers. Poon is artistic director of Hong Kong’s Prospects Theatre.

陪你闖進香港最豪最high最賤格示範單位 。一踏進去⋯⋯ Oh, my God, 香港還有這樣的地方嗎?她想了一想,回應我說:「Well… but this is just a… 示範單位。」

 香港藝術節另一港劇《示範單位》,直接以樓盤為題材,一對夫妻十年來不斷參觀示範單位,千揀萬揀,這次是否終於揀到終身歸宿之地呢?劇中那個單位並非地底,然而佈景設計像地洞,陰氣甚重,女主角還說感覺像殮房!事實上這城市很多住宅大廈單位在高樓包圍下,也像地府那樣不見天日。《示範單位》編導潘惠森是劇壇「無厘頭」名家,今次照例超現實荒謬怪雞。劉守正和邵美君演夫妻比較正常,三個爭生意的地產經紀張錦程、陳曙曦、陳淑儀就非常古怪,像風水佬喃嘸佬,大談見佛殺佛,又像陰魂不息的鬼魅,最後更變為三國劉關張升上神,很神經。
