Abstract

The first Vietnamese bishop, Nguyen Ba Tong, composed Tuong Thuong kho (Play of Passion) based on Jesus’s Passion narrated in The Old Testament. The manuscript was first published in 1912. Very different from Vietnamese traditional theatrical manuscripts, Tuong Thuong kho followed the style of Western classical play in structure and daily-life language. Therefore, it can be considered the first modern play written in Quocngu characters by a Vietnamese writer.
