WEN Fangyi, a student of Department of Drama, Film & Television of School of Liberal Arts, Nanjing University, was guided to write her term paper by professor LÜ Xiaoping in 2012. Prof. LÜ Xiaoping assigned WEN Fangyi to write a comedy titled The Face of Chiang Kai-shek based on the legend of Chiang Kai-shek, the president of National Central University, who invited professors of Department of Chinese Language and Literature to dinner.
In May, 2012, on the occasion of the 110th anniversary of Nanjing University, the Troupe of Master of Fine Arts of Nanjing University rehearsed the drama which was written by WEN Fangyi for the School Anniversary. LÜ Xiaoping directed this drama.
This is a fictitious story written by a student of younger generation based on the school history about the senior teacher and the president.
In 1943, Chiang Kai-she, who was the president of National Central University (renamed Nanjing University in 1950) invited three famous professors of the Department of Chinese Language and Literature to dinner. It made the three professors feel embarrassed: to go or not to go is an awkward matter. whether or not should they accept this invitation?
In 1967, in the former capital, Nanjing, the three professors were invited because of this matter. Each of them had different memories of whether they had been invited by Chiang Kai-shek and whether they had attended to Chiang Kai-shek’s dinner.
