This article first presents a list of French dramas which have been translated into Chinese and performed in China. By analysing the list of works, the author attempts to nail down the factors which influence both the translation and the performance of French dramas in China. In addition to the selection of dramas made by the translators or the stage directors from the cultural perspectives, there are still specific requirements for the translated works to be performed on the stage in China. This article highlights the importance for the translation works to recover the performance implicit in the text of the original works. Meanwhile, the author explores the process of drama translation by taking examples of the Chinese translation of Le Tartuffe, the famous play written by Molière.
