Attempts On Her Life

Hailed as Martin Crimp’s most significant play in the 1990’s, Attempts On Her Life offers glimpses of “Anne”- the mysterious character who, like a wandering spirit, appears in 17 story segments which seem completely disjointed yet thoroughly related. “Anne” has no specific physical appearance, image or even facial feature, yet she feels extremely real. Her tragedy lies within the manipulation, debates, exaggeration and suspicions to which she is subjected; whilst being idealised, invented, glorified, investigated, played with, captured, elevated, and treated with apathy… utter and complete apathy.

Fung’s multimedia version of Attempts On Her Life was awarded Best Director, Best Lighting Design, Best Original Music and Top Ten Most Popular Productions at the Hong Kong Drama Awards 2015.
