《傻姑娘与怪老树》 The Silly Little Girl and the Funny Old Tree
Synopsis

Once, a little girl made friends with an old tree. 

But it was going to be taken down to make way for new houses.

So she asked the tree-cutters:
Do you all know why plants bloom?
Why do stones not cry?
Why are tears not sweet? 
Why is the midnight sky blue?
Why do stars grow on skies?
Why do people hurt trees?

In a world so ruthless, will we fight for Nature? What does it mean to truly love and protect all living things amongst us?

The Silly Little Girl and The Funny Old Tree was written by theatre practitioner Kuo Pao Kun in 1987. Since then, the play has been taught in schools, and stands as a favourite amongst teachers, students and various drama groups in Singapore. 

Director Ang Gey Pin assumed the lead role in the 1987 premiere of the play. In this rendition, she will lead an ensemble from the Young People Performing Arts Ensemble, as well as a new generation of promising, and emerging actors to devise a highly-anticipated new staging of the iconic play.

有个孤独的小女孩,只喜欢和一棵老树说话。

有一天,为了让路给人们造房子,老树遭受了被砍伐的厄运。

小女孩能如何保护老树?

她问砍树的人:

为什么石头不会哭?
为什么眼泪不是甜的?
为什么夜晚是黑的?
为什么星星长在天上?
为什么要砍树?

面对日益变迁的社会环境,我们能像小女孩那样爱护老树和大自然吗? 何谓赤子之心?

《傻姑娘与怪老树》是新加坡已故剧作家 - 郭宝崑 - 于1987年的经典剧作,迄今已在香港、台湾,英国多个国家重新演绎。《傻》不但被纳入为学校文学教材之一,更是老师学生们经常选择的演出剧本。

由第一代饰演傻姑娘的本地戏剧家洪艺冰执导,她将带领青少儿广播演艺组的少年演员和一群本地活跃的成人演员,共同三度创作《傻姑娘和怪老树》;经过32年的戏剧磨练和社会历练后,她将如何解读此剧?确实值得大家拭目以待!
