The play centers on a day in December 1982 when a wedding party takes place in a courtyard in downtown Beijing, giving audiences a colorful cast of characters, with detailed stories, motivations and relationships.[Photo provided to China Daily]

"Through the wedding party, you can see what people back then thought about marriage and family relationships. You can also see the fashion and wedding traditions of the 1980s. For example, Xue's family gives the bride a Swiss Rado watch as a wedding gift. All these have changed dramatically."

Huang adds: "We made lots of effort to purchase props from the 1980s, such as furniture, daily necessities and clothes, to take the audience back to life as it was 40 years ago."
