Abstract

Three Dollars in National Currency (San kuai qian guobi 三塊錢國幣, 1939) is a little-known one-act comedy that was written in southwestern China during the third year of the Second Sino-Japanese War by Ding Xilin 丁西林 (1893–1974), one of twentieth-century China's pioneering playwrights. The introduction highlights the play's significance both as a turning point in Ding Xilin's creative oeuvre and as a comedic exploration of the geopolitics of wartime China's "Greater Rear Area."
