Abstract

The analysis of this research basically concerns issue of setting of developed country which is depicted through the sign systems found in the drama script “Nyayian Rimbayana”. Principally, the research is a descriptive qualitative research with Roland Barthes’s semiotics as the main tool to examine the data.

Key words: Drama, semiotics, developed country, liberal capitalism.
