There are two things that must to be done in one’s life: one is an unconditional love, and the other is a travel without delay. Two lovers who are about to break up have got a couple’s trip by mistake. Only they know that this is a break-up trip. With the development of the plot, they walked into the wedding banquet, entered the majestic Potala Palace, walked into the mysterious Nepal until they finally arrived at Lhamo Latso Lake. The play describes the lives of urban men and women in detail. Through the description of individuals in the city, it reflects all kinds of ironies and paradoxes, conflicts, sadness and happiness created by the friendship, love, and family love of modern men and women who live in natural forest in the context of the great era.
The classic Urban Romantic Comedy “The trip taking leave without delay” is produced by the Star Theatre. This audiences’ favorite stage play that featured the theme of “love and travel” once had viewers set a brilliant record of watching 15 performances continuously. Such a crazy record serves to show the charm of “The trip taking leave without delay”.
It starting from the microscopic perspective, and reflecting the love concepts and life views of young folk in the metropolis
“The trip taking leave without delay” was part one “The Two Life Impulses” directed by HUANG Yanzhuo. The play describes the lives of urban men and women in detail. Through the description of individuals in the city, it reflects all kinds of ironies, conflicts, sadness and happiness created by the friendship, love, and family love of modern men and women who live in natural forest in the context of the great era.
Starting from the relatively emerging minorities “the Never-Marry Group” in urban life, and their attitude towards love and marriage, the play reflects the anxiety and mistrust of people in this fast-developing society. At the same time, through the story of travel by parents and children, the traditional concept of China clashed with modern urban life. While laughing together, it also allows the audience to think more about the relationship between our parents and ourselves.
High-quality jokes, “break-up journey” with lighthearted humor
Urban romance is romantic and realistic but always has a consequence. When a love comes to an end, will it be a marriage? There are always twists in love that are difficult to understand. The “The trip taking leave without delay” is about the male central character and the heroine who are lovers and are living together. As they are deeply involved with each other, conflicts are frequent and emotions are trapped. When the two were preparing to break up, they were “accidentally” given an opportunity of “travel in honeymoon”. This “honeymoon trip” held a memorial ceremony for the love that they thought had passed away was actually a break-up trip. The two went together to the places they had never been to, viewed different landscapes, met something they had never encountered, and realized different life. The most important thing was to “discover” the self and the love that they had never met.
In the process of traveling, all kinds of jokes came out and in different ways, but this play is not only about accumulated jokes. All the jokes are to serve the development of the story, so that the audience can see a complete and ideologically meaningful drama as they go about laughing.
