Art review: SEVEN COLORS OF SOLITUDES
Playwright and director: Fung Ka Leung
There are total 7 plays of SEVEN COLORS OF SOLITUDES: Yellow ( 'A photographer captured by time'); Blue ( 'A Cellist lost in emotion'), Green ( 'A Nurse envisioned by Desire'); Purple ( 'A restaurant Owner drowned in Memory'); Cyan ( 'An Insurance Agent trapped in Reality'); Red ( 'A MTR Film Buff reminiscent of Love'); Orange ( 'Young Girl waiting for hope').Seven plays shows seven anonymous people, living in seven secluded places and seven monotonous days.

The director do a well job here: before telling us the photographer 's
