Mrs Warren's Profession was performed in China before it had a public performance in England. Kay Li situates the play's production as an attempt by progressive Chinese intellectuals to advance feminist reforms and bring China closer to Western modes of thinking, especially around the roles of women. Despite the emergence of the New Woman as a personally and economically empowered identity in China, the production was not a success. Li offers reasons for this negative response and discusses how subsequent adaptations of the play attempted to redress the evident gap between Chinese and Western feminism and make the play more palatable for Chinese audiences.
