Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.” - Cesar A. Cruz The role of theatre or any other form of art that talks about issues is to draw attention to that problem and to create a dialogue for its solution. Art is meant to release the captivated thoughts and emotions. Theatre is an art that represents various arts in a cohesive way. Drama is a mirror of the society; it is a medium of entertainment and a tool for a dialogue. Drama is also energy; and it is also a voice against circumstances, emotions, relationships, systems, oppression and misery. Drama is a medium which has been keeping stories alive, since eternity. Theatre is a storytelling, delivery medium that everyone can use. From time to time, it is essential to look at this medium in a new light, and not limit it entertainment.
