Citizen Dog by Oliver Chong and Liu Xiaoyi is loosely inspired by Laozhai, the classic collection of Chinese ghost stories.

The Finger Players' resident director Oliver Chong wants to talk about his dog but he can't. It is not a pet but a puppet, and is such a secret that it doesn't even appear on publicity materials for the play Citizen Dog, which runs from June 8 to 10 at the Victoria Theatre.

A week after the run of Citizen Dog, from June 15 to 17, The Finger Players' company director Chong Tze Chien presents Framed, By Adolf, also at Victoria Theatre.
