Drama is basically a social art. It has need of an audience. It is a way of conveying a story of the few to the many. From the time in which man began to gather into groups there has been storytelling, the relating of an individual experience to the group. Usually this story would be extended in its retelling, for the dramatic instinct is inherent in human nature. This trait is apparent even today in the play of children with their inevitable "make-believe" worlds. It is, also, apparent in the art of theatre which has traveled tenaciously with man throughout his entire history.
