Happiness is the absence of striving for happiness – Chinese Philosopher Zhuang Zi

Do you know the ways of Zhuang Zi? Your chance of surviving this game might depend on it.

Lured by the promise of a lucrative bounty, six clueless strangers – a mystery novelist searching for inspiration for his next big break; a teacher urgently needing medical funds for her daughter; an online influencer dreaming of superstardom, a scheming corporate executive plotting his next move; a blue-collared worker drowning in his mountain of debts and a wealthy young thrillseeker – signed up to participate in an escape room game. The only way out of the locked room is to decipher clues hidden in the teachings of Chinese philosopher Zhuang Zi.

The seemingly safe game takes a sinister turn when a real gun is discovered. With the audience watching their every move and listening in to every discussion, dark secrets are revealed and masks are peeled away. Who will be the last one standing, to unlock the door and emerge the victor?

A dark comedy that cleverly integrates philosophical and entertaining elements, the critically-acclaimed The Way of Zhuang Zi has taken Taiwan by storm and will make its overseas premiere in Singapore at Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay as part of Huayi 2019. Featuring a stellar cast that includes Taiwanese actors Liu Liang-Tso and Bobby Dou, this is a performance that will keep you at the edge of the seat, gasping in awe with every twist.
