"It's also an experiment for me to gain a different vision of theater."

Another play by Meng, He Had Two Pistols with White and Black Eyes, which is adapted from a script of the same name by Nobel Literature laureate, Italian director and playwright Dario Fo, will be staged in Shenzhen on March 23 and 25. The play premiered in Beijing in 2016.

Meng, a Beijing native who graduated from the Central Academy of Drama, can still recall when his first play, Waiting for Gadot, based on a work by Irish playwright Samuel Becket (1906-1989), was staged in 1991. It ran for less than 20 shows.

But the theater veteran has come a long way, and he now owns his own company called Fengchao Theater which he set up 10 years ago.

The company has staged more than 1,000 shows in China and abroad.
