It was first published in the literary magazine, ''Four Months of Literature'', which was founded in 1934 by Chinese intellectuals, Zheng Zhenduo and Jin Yi. Shortly after its publication, a production of the play was mounted in Jinan, and later, in 1935, in Shanghai and in Tokyo, both of which were well received. In 1936, ''Thunderstorm'' debuted in Nanjing, with Cao Yu himself acting in the lead role. In 1938, following its theatrical triumphs, the play was made into two separate movies productions, one in Shanghai and another in Hong Kong, that were almost coincidental versions of one another. The latter production, made in 1957, co-starred a young Bruce Lee in one of his few non-fighting roles. *Taipei (Taiwan) — Asunción (Paraguay) *Nanjing (China) — Rosario (Argentina) *Montpellier (France) — Waitangi (Waitangi, Chatham Islands) (Chatham Islands, New Zealand) The '''Ming Dynasty Tombs''' ( WikiPedia:Nanjing commons:南京
