Collaborated with Theatre Farmers
DA by Hugh Leonard

DA - Macao 3rd Run

DA explores the relationship of family

Has your dad who passed away, ever come up on your mind or right in your sight?

So far, didn’t you catch any chance to tell him that you love him? By then, don’t you dare to tell the passed old man once that you really love him?
DA is originally a play from Ireland. Hugh Leonard, Irish playwright, described DA was a semi-autobiographical exploring the relationship of Charlie, a successful writer, with his adoptive father, whom he calls DA (as in “Dad”). Leonard was so confused when he was writing this play, not even knowing what and who should get into this journey of memory.

DA explores themes of death, family, memory ,and identity through humorous and yet touching dialogues.
