Never underestimate the might of a pen, especially one held by a critic. 

A harsh review puts the reputation of a theater titan at stake. The author is his erstwhile partner. Is it a libel case or a debate about the nature of art? Who is the giant? Who is the dwarf? Can they cut through the webs of human and legal relationships? 

Smear was created by multi-talented, award-winning playwright Wong Wing-sze. After her much-lauded play The Truth about Lying, about divorce and the law, Wong once again turns the stage into an arena for combat, where irony and intrigue are sharp weapons. 

Wong Wing-sze graduated from the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, majoring in Acting. She has written 27 stage plays since 2002. For The Truth About Lying, she won Best Script at the 20th Hong Kong Drama Awards, and Best of the Best Theatre Performances award from Hong Kong’s Time Out magazine in 2010. With Pang Ho-cheung, she co-wrote the screenplay of Beyond Our Ken, winner of Best Screenplay at the 10th Hong Kong Golden Bauhinia Awards and nominee for Best Original Screenplay at the 42nd Golden Horse Awards. For Radio Television Hong Kong she penned the TV screenplays Family Series, My Father's Funeral, and Poor Mother Courage, for which she received a Certificate of Merit in the Special Achievement: Writing category at the Chicago International Film Festival. Her latest piece, What is Success, was co-produced with Edward Lam Dance Theatre. Wong is currently pursuing her postgraduate studies in screenwriting. 

This bilingual edition is in Traditional Chinese and English. 

她發動了一場捍衛藝術核心價值的文化征戰,他迎擊的是—場全城起哄的誹謗官司。為了—篇無關痛癢的報刊評論,演藝天王誓要還自己一個藝術清白;文藝揚眉女子負隅頑抗,準備了—次玉石俱焚的自我犧牲。庭上的戲還未上演,庭外的戲如肥皂劇峰迴路轉。兩個律師面對藝術的辯証束手無策,原來一切卻與藝術無關。 


藝術與商業之爭鬧上法庭,背後卻是—個渴望愛與 

被愛,背叛與贖罪的故事,結局出人意表。
