Description
abstractSynopsis This play is adapted from Lin Tuan-qiu¡¦s same nameplay, Gaosha Guan. Published in 1943, it is the most historic among the extant early Taiwanese plays. This play takes place in an old inn named Gaosha Guan, located in the neighborhood of the Keelung Harbor. Yuan Wu, the owner of the inn, waits for his son, Kimula, to come home from work in Manchuria. Meanwhile, A xiu, the daughter of the keeper of the restaurant in the inn, also longs for her lover, who is also working in Manchuria with Kimula, to come home. Whenever they hear the foghorn blow, Wu and Xiu rush to the harbor with the hope to see their beloved ones only to be disappointed. Their days go by in the endless cycle of hope and despair. A lot of poetic images are deployed in the performance. For example, when the boats sail into the harbor, the kids tear off a page from the calendar and make it into a paper boat; when the girl is missing her beloved, her knitting becomes a never-ending job and creates a longer and longer scarf, indicating the passing of time. Famous Taiwanese old folk songs, i.e., Night Showers in the Harbor City, Wishing You Come Back Early, and Lovely Hourse, punctuate the performance along with the actors¡¦ dancing and singing. The singing and dancing brings relief to the sentimentality of the play with a tinge of fun and joy.
