《华丽上班族之生活与生存》(Design for Living)

我已经很久没看中文的话剧了。不过,我决定不妨在今年的华艺节挑一部来捧捧场,便挑了这由张艾嘉所编的话剧来着手。

剧情的摘要如下:
在 金融海啸中频频传出要裁员的消息,而公司的CEO张威(张艾嘉饰)也有所威胁。为了证明公司没人能取代她,她在下属当中部下陷阱,以语言游戏及挑逗来操作 每个人,摆布他们勾心斗角、互相提防,搞得大家人心惶惶、士气大跌。但事情却演变成不在她所安排当中,造成最终以悲剧收场。

总的来说,这 是一部不错的话剧。剧中带有一点趣味,但也有其中的哲理。最能勾起我思绪的就是李想(郑元畅饰)这角色。他根本在整个剧中是不属于这华丽上班族的一份子。 很明显的,从他的名字你就能知道他就是“理想”的化身。他的单纯(而是新鲜人的角色)代表了每个刚出道而抱有梦想的新鲜人。但人往往为了在奸诈的社会中生 存,自己的理想与个性都因周遭的事物给迷惑了。而单纯的心也被玷污了。就像剧中的所有角色一样,尤其是大伟(王耀庆饰)。结果,就像剧中的李想一样,理想 跟梦想就在无意中死了。

What made me reflect in the play was the character Li Xiang, who was totally out-of-place in the entire working environment. By his name, it was so obvious that he was the personification of aspirations. His naivety/innocence and status as a fresh grad newbie represents the initially inspired newbies that start work. However, due to societal influences, our aspirations get corrupted/forgotten, just like what happened to all the other characters in the show. Eventually, just like Li Xiang, our dreams & aspirations die accidentally.
