Drama Research Starter
Drama in its earliest form was part of religious rituals involving music and dance. A single masked, sometimes costumed, figure represented a benevolent or threatening spirit. Such rituals fail to meet modern definitions of drama, which require both the composition of a play and its performance, involving actors who typically tell a story through dialogue and action, often including costumes and scenery and acted upon a stage.
