When the English play was shown in Ed­in­burgh Fes­ti­val 2014, the Guardian lauded it as “the fun­ni­est play you’ll see about de­pres­sion,” and over the years dif­fer­ent pro­duc­tions of the play have re­ceived over­whelm­ing pop­u­lar­ity in the UK and North Amer­i­can. The Chi­nese ver­sion will be di­rected by Li Bo­nan, whose ac­claimed works in­clude How Much Love Can be Messed Up and Mr. and Mrs. Sin­gle.
