Mr. Laoshe lived in Beijing, an elegant courtyard in a busy city, and now he is a free-visited Memorial hall. His novels Camel Xiangzi and Fourth Generation Together are all handed down from generation to generation. His plays Teahouse and Longxugou have reached the peak of Chinese drama through the artists'creation of Beijing People's Art Theatre. Today, he comes here to Myanmar. Take care of Mr. Laoshe. You are a great people's artist. I salute you.
When we talk about Lao She, we will think of the four generations together, Camel Xiangzi. He uses a pen to depict Xiangzi, Tigress, Da Chibao, Master Qi, Chang Sibao and Cheng Madman vividly. His works are also included in high school textbooks. Lao She's former residence exhibition hall is divided into six parts to show us Lao She's life and creative process. Including Lao She's childhood, starting a family, starting a career, studying abroad and so on. It is worth visiting by parents and middle school students.
People's artist Lao She, originally known as Shu Qingchun, gave up his words. Laoshe bought the courtyard in 1949 when he returned from the United States. Check in in March 1950. Laoshe was satisfied with the courtyard and decorated it carefully. He also planted two persimmon trees in the courtyard. Every golden autumn, the orange persimmon was covered with branches. Laoshe's wife, Hu Qiuqing, also gave the courtyard an elegant name, the small persimmon courtyard.
Lao She's former residence is in the lane near Wangfujing. I come here with admiration for her name. The former residence has only a small courtyard surrounded by three rooms and can be visited in more than ten minutes. It is basically a display of the original material, restoring the scene of Lao She's work at that time. On weekends, a lot of students came to organize and play in the yard, which seemed to be quite lively.
The courtyard at Dengshikou is the place where Mr. Laoshe lived in his last days. It is a typical courtyard in old Beijing. There are many objects and books that Mr. Laoshe used in his life. Come here to understand Mr. Laoshe's life story, works, life brief, for his works will have a deeper understanding. This scenic spot is free to visit. The courtyard is quiet and elegant. If you come to Beijing, you must visit the old Beijing Hutong for a while. It has a different flavor.
Friendship reminds us that it is closed at present and will open on February 1, 2018. It's close to the Historian Hutong Museum. It's near the Metro Dengshikou Station. The distance between the two places is 1.2 kilometers. One hour is enough for the Historian Hutong Museum. The Laoshe Memorial Museum is not big enough. At most, it's only one hour. You can visit these two scenic spots while visiting Wangfujing. Of course, there is a Wangfujing Church nearby.
Laoshe Memorial Hall, located in No. 19 Courtyard of Rich Hutong, Dengshikou West Street, Dongcheng District, Beijing, was the former residence of Laoshe, namely "Tangshi Courtyard", which is an old-style courtyard in Beijing. Mr. Laoshe has lived here for more than ten years, and he is quite educated here.
