The play tells the love story between the famous poet Sima Xiangru and a talented girl Zhuo Wenjun in the Western Han Dynasty. A big shot in Linqiong Zhuo Wangsun has a daughter named Zhuo Wenjun who is very pretty and talented, but her husband died. Once at a banquet, she heard Sima Xiangru play zither. The poet played a Phoenix Seeks His Mate, that expresses the performer's adoration to the one he loves and the wishes of seeking for bosom friends. Peering through the curtain and listening to the music, Wenjun went to meet Sima Xiangru at night with her maid's help, and fell in love with him. Zhuo Wangsun was furious when he knew it and refused to allow his daughter to marry Sima Xiangru, a poor scholar. He betrothed her to Chen Ziqing who was adept at financing. Wenjun refused her father's arrangement because she knew that Ziqing had loved her sister Yijun already, and then eloped with Sima Xiangru. Zhuo Wenjun opened a liquor store in Linqiong to embarrass her father. Zhuo Wangsun had to give in. He gave his daughter a lot of money and ordered them to leave Linqiong. Wenjun and Xiangru moved and settled down at Chengdu, experienced countless frustrations but they loved each other very much. Later, Sima Xiangru was appreciated and given a high position by Emperor Wudi, and the couple returned home with fame and fortune. It is a much-told story in Chinese history. At the same time, the Male Phoenix Seeks His Mate has become popular with people, for it symbolizes the spirit of smashing feudal ethics and bravely pursuing love.
