Synopsis

Wendi Chen delineates the varying reasons for Chinese acceptance of Shaw--both the writer and the playwright-- focusing on four distinct historical moments in twentieth-century Chinese history since 1921. In so doing Wendi Chen shows Shaw to have been a catalyst in opening the Chinese stage to Western drama, in affecting the way the theaters were run, and in educating audiences and actors alike to the demands of a drama radically different from the conventions of traditional Chinese drama.
