A series of cultural events will be held during an international theater arts exchange month program in Fuzhou city in east China's Jiangxi Province from Sept. 28 to the end of October.

Performing groups from Russia, United Kingdom, Spain, France, Canada and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea will present their work.

"The exchange was designed to promote communication, friendship and business cooperation between Jiangxi and the world," said Wu Zhongqiong, vice governor of Jiangxi Province.

The exchange month program was named after Tang Xianzu, a prominent Ming dynasty playwright born in Fuzhou and a contemporary of William Shakespeare, active in the late 16th to early 17th century.

In China, Tang is considered one of the three masters who died in the same year, along with Shakespeare and Spanish writer Cervantes.

Recital competitions and singing games of works by Tang, Shakespeare and Cervantes will also be held.
