Description

Full Length Play

In vividly dramatic form, this play tells how a remote Chinese village comes to terms with Communism. Every revolution creates new words. The Chinese revolution created a whole new vocabulary in which a very important word is "fanshen" which literally means "to turn the body" or "to turn over."

Moreover it means to enter a new world and this play is the story of how the peasants of Long Bow build a new world.
