Major productions include: ART (1998), West Side Story (2000), A Few Good Men, Glass Menageries (2001), The Sound of Music, They are playing our song, Twelve Angry Men (2003), Sai Fung, A Woman Alone, On Golden Pond (2003), DA (2004), Lapin Agile and Painting Churches (2005), Oscar et la dame Rose (2006), Peter Pan Asian tour (2007) , The Visitor , Vincent In Brixton , and Judgment at Nuremberg (2008), The Unexpected Guest, Alice in Bed(2009) , Nunsense, The Only King (2010), On The Slope, Jeweler’s Shop & A Life (2011) , The Message (2012) .

The show was later performed in Macau (2001) and an intergraded version was staged in Hong Kong (2006). Bee has also collaborated with artists from England , Germany , Netherlands , Brazil and Chile to stage Maggots (2001) – a multi-media project based on Shakespearean texts Julia Caesar & Macbeth, with drama, video, Israel i puppets, Japanese Taiko & flute. And he organized site specific projects in Hong Kong (2004 & 2006) with Silo Theater from the Netherlands, as well as Scenography workshops (2001, 2004, 2006, 2008) that encourages youngsters to express themselves and share their ideas through researching and experimenting on the possibilities of mingling with various medias such as texts, drama, installations, lights, music, movements, objects and more together, to create a contemporary and living experience of theatre.

He is now the coordinator of Hong Kong Drama Festival and part time tutor of the School of Continuing Studies of Hong Kong Chinese University & HKU SPACE.
