Award-winning actress Jiang Wenli makes a comeback

Award-winning actress Jiang Wenli is back in the spotlight with her role in the Chinese stage adaptation of a Western romantic comedy.

Jiang, best known for her roles in Chen Kaige's film Farewell My Concubine and the 2004 TV drama Chinese Divorce, will star in Same Time, Next Year, a Chinese adaptation of the 1975 romantic comedy by Canadian playwright Bernard Slade.

The story is about accountant George Peters, who lives in New Jersey, and Oakland-based housewife Doris. They meet by chance at an inn in northern California in 1951. After a one-night stand, they agree to meet once a year at the same inn on the same day. Since both are married and have families, they develop a relationship beyond that of lovers over the following 25 years.
