Celebrating writing of Sun Yat-sen

A PLAY about Sun Yat-sen writing “The International Development of China” at his home in the city premiered at the Shanghai Institute of Visual Arts yesterday in celebration of the book’s 100th anniversary.

“One Day at a House on Rue Moliere,” tells the story of the writer and his wife Soong Ching Ling at their residence on what is now Xiangshan Road when Sun was completing his book.

It concentrates the couple’s life and their ideas into just one day, combining history and reality, politics and art as well as their dreams and mission.

The audience for two performances yesterday comprised government officials, university students and researchers.

Tuesday was the 153rd anniversary of the birth of Sun, a pioneer of China’s democratic revolution.

Sun and Soong lived in the house from 1918 and it was there he met representatives of the Communist Party of China. The residence is now an exhibition center presenting Sun’s life, together with some artifacts and a statue of Sun outside.
