About the Performance
[Be Your Own Master and Shoulder Responsibility for Each of Your Choices]
With the theme of “choice of your own,” this play tells a story from the perspective of the little emperor who loves to play video games. In the age where individualism reigns, it is no longer an exclusive privilege for adults to absorb information from multiple sources and aspects. All kinds of desires, obsessions, implacability and additions more or less affect everybody’s life. Are we all trapped in our own choices? Who is going to decide whether the ultimate influences are good or bad?
[Adhere to Optimism and Do Good Things without Asking Future]
Plum, the delightful girl in the original book, upholds the optimistic attitude and the belief of doing good things even when she is seriously ill. Such spirit leads her to act selflessly without any doubt and to duly choose sacrifice when she faces the unknown journey ahead of her and new companions upon entering the Temple of Thousand Cranes by accident. We cannot help wonder if the institutional kindness will in turn bring forth good development beyond our expectation.
[Upgrading the Nature of Kindness—The Kindest Force in the Universe Brings You the Best Fortune Everyday!]
In the play, other than Clear Sky, Plum also demonstrates the ultimate optimism and selflessness. The two of them jointly bring forces to the Sun Dynasty. The four elderly assistant ministers in the book always seek for divination for guidance whenever they encounter major problem. Every one of those who have faith in destiny and in kindness is the lucky start to shine upon the Sun Dynasty!
[Clear Sky and Bright Star, Sun and Moon, Jointly Light Up the World and Untie the Most Implacable Knot]
The Little Deputy Clear Sky, who has been assisted by all the people and ghosts, meets the equivalently remarkable girl from the Cat Clan, Plum. They join hands in providing the world with the source of light with the doubled-up force of kindness, like Sun and Moon—the brightest things in the day and night.
