December 22, 2006, Newsletter Issue #44: Drama and Playing

Tip of the Week

Drama, and the act of performing drama, forces us to re-engage the spirit of discovery. As children, we played and discovered. In the artificial creation of human relationships, and the mimicry of human relationships that stem from drama, we are forced to relearn how we engage in relationships. The writer of drama must examine how to bring characters together within the plot, while the actor of drama must learn how to imitate these relationships on stage. It is perhaps why we call it "playing" a role, or even why a dramatic production is called a "play"!
