Shixian (Realization), the first poetic drama to focus on the life of Chinese industrial workers, is set to debut at the Beijing Tianqiao Performing Arts Center on July 28, the producer announced at a press conference on Wednesday.

As the latest play produced by Beijing Shougang Culture Ltd., a subsidiary of steel industry giant the Shougang Group, Shixian aims to pay tribute to Chinese factory workers through three independent yet correlated stories that showcase the true life of steel workers over a span of 60 years.

The play is based on playwright Zheng Tianwei's nine-month experience actually living with factory workers.

After August 3, the play will be performed at factories and plants across Beijing.
