Her debut on the theatre stage came in summer 2016 with Skylight – the premiere of Chinese adaptation of the 1995 British play by David Hare that debuted in West End and Broadway. The play was scheduled to run for 24 shows at the Lyric Threatre HKAPA, and due to overwhelming responses, 11 additional shows were added, making that a total of 35 shows running across 1 July 2016 to 14 August 2016. Starring alongside Dayo Wong and Terrance Lau, Skylight was sold out within a few hours, and it received raving positive reviews including praises for Fala’s performance as a theatre actor.
