The the­ater adap­ta­tion of Suzhou Creek, an in­ter­na­tional award-win­ning movie di­rected by Lou Ye, will be staged. The movie was never re­leased in China, and tells the story of a de­liv­ery man search­ing for a woman along the Suzhou Creek in down­town Shang­hai. Play­wright Zhao Lian man­aged to cap­ture the clash be­tween re­al­ity and “the fairy tale of love”. The great­est chal­lenge in cre­at­ing the play is to present the nar­ra­tive on­stage, which was done suc­cess­fully through the cam­era lens. The play will starHe Ping and Li Li (pic­tured). 7:30 pm, Tues-Sun, March 27-April 5; 2 pm, April 6. Shang­hai Dra­matic Arts Cen­ter-Art The­ater, 1F, 288 Anfu Lu (Road), Shang­hai. 021-6473-0123.
