Why is the play the thing? Why and how does it capture our imagination and entertain us even as it stirs our emotions, provokes us to thought, and maybe even teaches us a thing or two? As the literary genre that lives on both page and stage, drama demands not merely the reading of the text but also the imagining of the play's stagecraft, the delivery of the lines, the appearance and attitude of the actors, and many other theatrical details. EP367 ranges from the classical to the contemporary with several stops in between. Drama's susceptibility to a staggering variety of responses and interpretations is guaranteed to nurture the creative spirit.
