A real people's drama called Neighborhood Committee will be staged by the Beijing People's Art Theatre, the most popular theatre company specializing in plays with strong Beijing flavour.
Directed by Gu Wei, the six-act play describes funny stories that happened in a neighborhood committee, the smallest organizing units in China. It reveals the complicated psychology of todays's urban residents. The play appeals for mutual understanding and tolerance among the common people at the time when precious values are losing ground in the current commercial whirlwind.
The strong cast includes Gong Lijun, Wang Danian, Xu Xiulin, Zhang Wankun and Jin Zhao, all highly-acclaimed performers.
Neighbourhood Committee runs 7:15pm from Nov.10-30 except Monday at Capital Theatre, 22 Wangfujing Dajie, Dongcheng District.
