Synopsis:
When Jason Wong reports for work as a typist, he makes it clear to his fellow worker, Miss Lee, that his employment is strictly temporary. Jason, a married man, is studying O Level at night, and with his uncle already in successful practice, there is every hope that his future will be a promising one.

Miss Lee, the "supervisor" of the two-employee office, has a few dreams herself mostly of the romantic variety so often indulged in by not so young spinsters with widowed mothers to support. Jason and Miss Lee hit it off well, and as Jason's "temporary" tenure stretches on from weeks to months to years, they become involved in the shared experiences of close daily contact.

And, within the short span of the play, they begin to age and grow grey. While they go on chattering of the important things that have happened to them and of the bright future that will be coming up any day, the futility of their existence becomes increasingly evident.

When they finally dodder off with friendly "good night" to their unseen employer we have witnessed a cycle of life complete with the humour, sadness, self-delusion and reconciliation that underlie and infuse the human condition.

由導演黃麗珍執導的《打字經》是一齣橫跨三十年的舞台劇。朝氣十足的王志強一踏進辦公室就跟他的同事宣稱打字員這一份工作將只是他暫時性的工作而已,因為他真正的目標是考上大學,當一名成功的律師。李麗芬,王志強的主管,一名已到適婚年齡又遲遲嫁不出去的單身女子,最希望的就是趕緊離開家裡覓得屬於自己的幸福。日復一日、年復一年,王志強依舊沒有考取他想要的學位,而麗芬寄情的人又會不會給她她想要的幸福呢?

在短短的演出裡,他們從花樣年華慢慢邁向退休年齡,兩人即使有很多夢想但因為種種現實條件只能當打字員。兩人的關係從相敬如兵的同事慢慢發展成相互依賴的知己。他們退休的那一天也就是打字部門關閉的那一天,當他們向老闆道出再見時,我們仿佛也參與了他們這些年生活上的甜酸苦辣。
