Will I Still Be Normal Tomorrow (In Cantonese), Pants Production, La Cremeria Theatre, Fringe Club, May 19 Two monologues, one from a housewife and another from a wanderer, form the basis of this original play by James Cheung. The two stories ultimately interweave into a clever plot. Staged by Pants Production, this production questions the definition of being normal or abnormal in life. Do the two characters live in an abnormal world? Or do they lead an abnormal life in a normal world? Chow Wai-keung takes on the role of a middle-aged housewife. From the moment she opens her eyes in the morning her daily routine grabs her by the throat. She wakes her husband and then her children. She cooks them breakfast and updates herself with what the children are learning. A squabble with her husband is usual before she sends the children off to school. She wonders: why doesn't her husband love her the way he used to? Then there is car accident outside her house. She invites the driver into her home and realises this man is no stranger but someone she went to school with. Memories come flooding back and the second monologue begins. Cecilia Ng plays the wanderer who left home at a young age and is returning to meet his brother. He is uncertain about how his family will react to his arrival. On the way, he is stopped by police. His monologue jumps between the past and present and the audience finally learns the man the housewife finds outside her house is the wanderer. Both Chow and Ng do well to balance the past and present in their interpretations of their characters. The scene in which the wanderer swears in front of his nephew and niece is intelligent, ironic and hilarious. The housewife's monologue is more straight forward than that of the wanderer's which leaves the audience wondering where he is headed. Will I Still Be Normal Tomorrow is like a jigsaw with too many pieces but trying to find the solution is what makes the game fun.
