HCM CITY— Private drama troupe TKC will stage a solemn play today based on the life of soldiers to mark the Day for Invalids and Martyrs (July 27).
The 90-minute drama, Một Thời Để Nhớ (A Time to Remember), features many final-year students at theatre schools like Thiện Nhân, Uyên Nhi and Mai Mai.
Directed by Trịnh Kim Chi and Xuân Tiến, it uses revolutionary songs written by well-known composers like Phạm Tuyên and Xuân Sách.
“I’m young and have no experience of war,” Nhi of the HCM City College of Theatre and Cinematography, said.
“Therefore, I have worked hard to portray a realistic image of Vietnamese soldiers.
“Một Thời Để Nhớ is a quality play aimed at highlighting the role of Vietnamese soldiers, who devote their life to the country’s independence. I refused several contracts from film and music producers to perform a supporting role in the play.
“I hope my performance will leave an impression on my young fans, who often see me in comedy and music videos.”
The play will be staged on Sundays throughout August at TKC Theatre, 259 Hậu giang Street, District 5. Tickets are available at the venue.
Opened last year by Chi, one of the city’s favourite female theatre actors, the small theatre has a troupe consisting of young talent from art schools.
“Our shows have attracted more than 3,000 people,” Chi said.
“We plan to offer free admission to Một Thời Để Nhớ for Heroic Mothers, veterans and soldiers in Củ Chi and Bình Dương and Bà Rịa- Vũng Tàu provinces.” —VNS
