The Era of Women!
Premiered at Metropolitan Hall on January 14th, 2005. Not only does it keep up with Performance Workshop’s tradition of a crosstalk every four years, but also transcends the tradition of the crosstalk genre – adding female voices. Why didn’t women participate in crosstalk? With the most talented cast: Fang Fang, Hsiao Ai and Deng Chenghui and the collectively improvised script, the world is newly discovered with the eyes of women. Continuing yet updating the form of the “Masters arriving at the party” scene, this play begins with an end-of-year part, and two excellent direct salesperson are waiting for a mysterious old lady’s arrival. Yet, her granddaughter comes in her place and the presence of the old lady remains a secret. This promoted version - the quick-witted crosstalk is then, filled with women-related subjects.
