Description Drama students have produced two plays which show an interpretation of the contrasting traditional and contemporary social - political - cultural life in China. The theme of repression runs through each play. In the Yuan Dynasty play, The Injustice Done to Tou Ngo, the rigid social code of ehtics restricts the individual; whereas, in the contemporary play, Dragon Beard Ditch, it is poverty and misery of the environment which supresses the individual.
