EXPLORATION Theatre is to stage Greenlife - Hope of Deliverance in 22 schools this month and in February.


The Cantonese play, focusing on the issue of environmental protection, recently won the ''Environmental Art Award'' by Friends of the Earth. On its last tour, Greenlife was performed 24 times before an audience of 14,000.


The story is about three teenagers who get together to design a bulletin board in order to promote the idea of environmental protection.


Discovering that their methods fail to work, and only worsens the cause, they adopt three different approaches towards the issue.


Students are asked to cast a vote in favour of one of the approaches. A discussion is then held in order to strengthen their concept of environmental protection.


The play is directed by Karley Ng and performed by Davis Yu, Sammy Chau, Gloria Hung, Vivian Li, Kevin Lee and Even Lam.


Greenlife will be touring more schools in April and September. Schools interested should call Ms May Yung on 889-2132.
