The Beijing People's Art Theater has staged a new version of its classic drama, "Family" at the Capital Theater in Beijing. It's a celebration for the 90th anniversary of the founding of CPC.

The drama "Family", adapted from Ba Jin's novel of the same name, made its debut during the 1940's.

In 1984, Beijing People's Art Theater performed the drama for the first time. Famous artist Lan Tianye was the director. This time, the stage icon returned with another experienced actor Zhu Xu, both of whom played their characters vividly.

Well-known actor Pu Cunxin brought his role alive while many young actors born after 1980s, such as Yuan Yu(原雨) and Miao Chi(苗驰), also demonstrated their performances to audiences.

Liang Guanhua, Actor, said, "Young actors have performed very well. This really puts us at ease. We are confident now that they have inherited their skills well."

The stage design helped bring the play back to the life of the 1920s, when the Communist Party of China was just founded.

Zhang Heping, Director of Beijing People's Art Theater, said, "'Family' is our gift for the birthday of the CPC. It was written by Ba Jin and edited by great playwright Cao Yu. The powerful work has inspired the young people of many generations to join the Communist Party."

The drama runs until July the 10th at the Capital Theater.
