“Fanshen" means, literally, “to turn over”-to fashion a new life. This uniquely constructed play is an authentic and lucid account of how the people of Long Bow village in China came to terms with the communist revolution and created a new world. The life of the entire village bubbles briefly before us as the inhabitants, preoccupied with the monumental struggle for land, find time to reflect on more fragile human values: the duty of any one person to himself and to his society.
