Written in 1957, "Teahouse" is Lao She's "tour de force"
masterwork of Chinese drama: a play in three acts spanning fifty
years with a cast of over sixty characters drawn from all levels of
society. Brought together over the daily ritual of tea and
conversation, the characters reflect on the changes in their own
lives as well as in China as a whole. As a work of drama,
"Teahouse" has been studied and performed worldwide in many
languages. This new edition, based on John Howard-Gibbon's classic
English translation, will appeal to those interested in theater
arts and the history of drama and stagecraft as well as those
interested in Chinese history.
Lao She (1899-1966) is the pen name of Sheyu Shu. He is the
author of numerous works of fiction including "Rickshaw Boy."
