Peaches and Plums in the Spring Wind (Chinese《桃李春风》) is a 1943 play by Lao She, co-written with Zhao Qingge (赵清阁). It was one of the most successful works of Lao She's 1940s attempts at play-writing; however, despite a cash prize from the government for the play, Lao She then returned to novel writing soon after.[1] The play was written to commemorate the Teacher's Day of 1943, as well as to promote national unity and patriotism.[2]
