Film: "Teahouse"

Based on the play by Lao She,

Beijing Film Studio

Xie Tian, Director

British Embassy Amenities Hall

This is the recently filmed production of Lao She's classic play done by the Beijing Film Studio. The actors are mostly those who created the roles years ago - Yu Shizhi as Wang Lifa and Ying Ruocheng as Pockface Liu. As the film is in Chinese without English subtitles, all are urged to read the play beforehand, available in translation at the Foreign Languages Bookstore. It is more than worth any effort as the play gives all the flavor of the once-popular Chinese teahouses.
