Abstract

Throughout the course of the 20th century, the forms of Vietnamese theatre have evolved, traditional forms being replaced with newer ones, yet some common threads run through the theatre of the century. Vietnam has, for the last hundred years or so, embraced the idea of the theatre as a vehicle for overt propaganda, both for those in power and for those out of power. This paper explores the various groups that have used the theatre in this manner. In addition, it looks at the varying portrayal of women in the Vietnamese theatre.
