A drama called Stories of Family Traditions made its debut at the China National Museum of Women and Children (CNMWC) on May 26 in Beijing.

The two-hour performance showcased family stories of role models, including heroine Zhao Yiman (1905-1936), who sacrificed her life in the resistance war against Japanese aggression, Dunhuang cultural heritage researcher and protector Fan Jinshi (1938- ), environment protector Xu Xiujuan (1964-1987), outstanding member of the Communist Party of China Yang Shanzhou (1927-2010), who made great contribution to afforestation, writer Lu Xun (1881-1936) and ideologist and educator Liang Qichao (1873-1929). The stories used narration, recitation, dance and cappella singing to illustrate family education, good family traditions exemplified by the models and how to lead a good family life in the new era. 

The drama's performers were comprised of amateur actors and actresses, including volunteers, primary and secondary school students and community residents.

Organized by the CNMWC and Beijing People's Art Theatre, the event was a family-tradition-promotional activity launched by the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) and a part of the ACWF's Family Happiness and Well-being Campaign.
