Love A La Zen

Date:3 - 5 April 1999

Venue:Victoria Theatre


Two young couples quarrel. The boys walk out in anger, and on impulse, they join a religious retreat to listen to the teachings of Buddha. Through this, they are truly enlightened, the world to them is now a state of “nothingness”, and they attempt to abstain from any emotion. The girls want to make up, but are rejected. Determined to pursue, they join in the congregation to investigate. To their surprise, they find out that the ‘master’ at the congregation is a young man. His teachings are so enlightening and soothing that one of the girls immediately takes interest in him, and seeks to capture his attention. The young master finds himself entangled in the lives of the two couples. Things begin to get out of hand as conflicts and contradictions arise, creating numerous hilarious moments at the same time.


To his surprise, the master finds out that he is not quite a saint after all, as he realizes he is attracted to the girl. On the brink of breaking his vows, how would he react? How would he continue to inspire others? The story promises an interesting ending.

Art originates from life. Theatre is like a mirror that reflects the people and happenings in life from a different perspective, encouraging us to look within ourselves and to observe the ways of others.
