Theatre is one of the oldest yet most collaborative art forms in practice. It is a confluence of multiple streams of art. In a social context, theatre has been used as much as a source of entertainment as it has been as a voice of the people throughout its rich history. At the level of an individual, engaging in theatre explores creativity, helps build group dynamics and mines out core strengths forcing one to venture beyond one’s usual comfort zones. It is also currently being brought into the context of education and, in some instances, is being taught alongside regular curricula. Rooted in theatre, therefore, is a strong sense of belonging and dedication, all of which makes the act of crafting a play as enjoyable as the act of watching one.
This book contains fourteen short plays of varied theatrical forms, including physical theatre, musical theatre, absurd theatre, etc. The original plays in this collection have been written mostly for young adults and can be performed for a wide range of audience.
