Miscellaneous notes from the author
A re-telling of an old Chinese folk tale, in many scenes, but with simple set requirements.
As the only daughter of a family in need of Imperial favour, Ying has no choice about marrying Prince Wencai. But the unexpected death of her father puts her brother in charge of the family, and she can travel to school instead, meeting a new love. This is an adaptation of an old Chinese folk tale, dating back to at least the Tang Dynasty. It balances the traditional tale with an engaging style of dramatization.
