"Get Lost" (Zhaobuzhao Bei), or literally "Couldn't Figure Out the North", the well received tragi-comedy looking at the lives of Beijing's common people, has been on stage in the capital city for three months and is running through Oct. 19.
Performed by the China Youth Art Theatre and the China Research Institute of Drama,Film and Television, the play describes the different lifestyles, feelings and concepts of two brothers, one a bricklayer and the other a painter.
In humorous style, and with a very strong local flavor, the play criticizes money-worshipping and appeals for true feelings in the current commercial environment.
The play is directed by Du Peng, a veteran actor of the Youth Art Theatre. The cast includes Lin Liankun, Hou Yaohua, Hang Ju, Lu Wen and Zhao Tingxiu, all well-known stage actors.
Zhaobuzhao Bei runs 7:15 PM, Oct. 10-19, at the Cultural Palace of Nationalities,49 Fjuwai Dajie, Xicheng District. For tickets call: 010 6602-2770. -- By Wang Ling
