The Story of Gong and Drum Lane;《锣鼓巷的故事》

In the old South Gong and Drum Alley, great changes have taken place unconsciously in the tide of economic and social transformations. There are dense historic forces here. Also it is a microcosm of the modern culture. The most important thing is that people here have been changing, moving from a life of peace, simplicity and limitation to one of openings, noise and richness.

The story happens in 2009. As many leisure cafes and culture creative shops have sprung up, a small folk theatre silently emerges close to the Central Academy of Drama. In the process of rehearsing, they disturb their neighbour, Qiangzi and his family. Qiangzi is a young man with ambitions but does nothing all day long. Qiangzi’s mother is a fifty-year- old ordinary retired citizen. As a young person in the 1970s, she experienced pure good feelings. Now she feels numb and disappointed with life and angry with Qiangzi and his father. Unintentionally she and Qiangzi are embroiled in the conflict between the Theater Manager Lin, Director Han and the young actors of the Central Academy of Drama. The play discusses about how to truly reproduce the history and the spiritual journey of those olden days. At first she is too ashamed to speak out, but finally admits it Is a good feeling. In the end, she succeeds in communicating with and understanding her son.

古老的南锣鼓巷,在经济大潮和社会变革的进程中,不知不觉发生着巨大的变化。这里有浓重的历史遗迹,也有现代文化的缩影,更有经历过宁静单纯局限,到开放喧闹丰富中变化着的人们。
故事发生于2009年,在众多休闲咖啡馆、文化创意店雨后春笋般产生的过程中,紧邻中戏的一所民间小剧场悄然出现。他们在排戏过程中打扰了邻居强子一家。强子是一个虽有理想但终日无所事事的胡同青年。强子妈是五十岁的退休的普通市民,从青春时期的七十年代一路走来,经历过纯真美好的感情,到现如今对生活的麻木和失望,并把这种失望迁怒于强子父子,又在无意中和强子一起卷入与小剧场林经理、韩导以及中戏青年演员的冲突纠葛之中,最后,在戏剧如何真实再现历史,再现自己当年真实的心路历程中,由羞于启齿到敢于承认当年美好的感情,完成了与儿子的沟通与理解。
