Children’s play on stage 

Children’s drama The Old Dog Got into Trouble, produced by the Beijing Performing Arts Group and performed by the Beijing Children’s Art Theater, will be staged at the Nanluo Theater on May 26 in Beijing. 

Adapted from well-known writer Ye Guangqin’s work, the play tells the story of a Beijing girl Yaya, who grew up in a hutong, or alley residence, against the background of campus life in the 1950s. 

According to director Wang Ze, compared with the innocence in the previous two plays, Yaya entering school leads to her feeling a bit lost and helpless in this unknown environment. The play will focus on her growth and progress while slowly adapting to school life. 

Wang Dong, director of the Beijing Children’s Art Theater, said that after the first round of performances of The Old Dog Got into Trouble, they will stage the whole story of Yaya and her growth together with the two previous plays Getting Late and Cat on the Roof.
