    the drama I was asked by Mr. Liu

    I am too busy to enjoy Romeo and Juliet, the drama I was asked by Mr. Liu, so I need someone who has read it to tell me what it is about.

    The above sentence is quoted from a test. Is it acceptable?

    Re: the drama I was asked by Mr. Liu

    It is not correct. It should be something like:

    I am too busy to read Romeo and Juliet, the play Mr Liu asked me to read, and so I need someone who has read it to tell me what it is about.

    If you must have a passive, then the underlined part can be 'the play I was aked by Mr Liu to read'.
