Lao She (1899 – 1966) was one of the most significant figures of the 20th-century Chinese literature as a novelist and dramatist. He was best known for his novel Rickshaw Boy and the play Teahouse. To mark the 120th anniversary of his birth, the Renwen Society, in partnership with the Chinese Students and Scholars Association at Teachers College, Columbia University and the Princeton Chinese Theatre, presents Lao She’s Teahouse on March 23 and March 24 (four showings).

Teahouse is a play in three acts that mirrors old China in an ordinary Beijing teahouse and covers more than 50 years of change from 1898 to 1948. First staged in 1957, the play is a social and cultural commentary on the issues faced by China during the early twentieth century.

Teahouse as performed by a cast of 35 actors, who are all Princeton University students, is an innovative semi-immersive production, where the audience are able to not only watch the show in close proximity, but also have the opportunity to participate and immerse themselves in the hustle and bustle of Peking as the story unfolds.
