Abstract

Several recent theatrical works in Taiwan have used multiple languages within a single performance. Using two 1997 productions as examples, John B. Weinstein argues that this multilingual technique, which feels natural to playwrights, actors, and audiences in Taiwan, enables the playwrights to explore issues of identity more extensively. Furthermore, the audience's experience varies in accordance with each member's own language background.
