According to noted theatre critic Yu Shan-Lu, Lin’s work “possesses a sense of maturity and philosophical contemplation rarely seen in the post-1980 generation, often touching upon memory, growing up, history and one’s home as his subjects. Working through multiple levels of humanity, psychology and philosophy, his style is marked by a richness in reflection and humanistic thought, while a sense of poetry runs through his theatrical language.”
