The year end season is also a prime time for stage performances. Sun Haiying and Lv Liping, married in real life and who played a couple in the popular TV series "Years of Burning Passion", are collaborating again in the drama "Peer Gynt".

As she prepares for her debut in a drama, Lv Liping highly recommends people watch the play.

Actress Lv Liping said, "The seniors in the audience would like to know Peer Gynt's whole life, the younger people will learn some lessons from him, and children will view the character as a bad example. The drama is very instructive, because you see your inner world through it."

Lv's husband, Sun Haiying has been absent from stage dramas for over two decades. He encourages those depressed people to come to see the play.

"Peer Gynt" is by honored Norwegian dramatist Henrik Ibsen. It's considered a most inspirational play in culture and philosophy. It's the story of a life based on avoidance, and it is regarded as a satire on the Norwegian personality. The play is set to premiere at Beijing's Poly Theatre in early December.

Another drama "He and His Two Wives", starring Taiwan actor Ken Chu, is now on stage in Beijing. It's the story of taxi driver who secretly has two wives. But one day a typhoon and a car accident force his secret out into the open.

Also, Beijing People's Art Theatre's all-star drama "Wotou Compound" will see its second and third round of presentations starting next month.
