About the Book

 Theatrical drama, one of the oldest and perhaps the most popular form of art, becomes both an economic as well as an artistic activity, since material means and cultural genres coalesce with one another in it. Inevitably, cost of production and its recoupment enter in the picture as concomitant variables. Support from the patrons of various categories, the latest being audiences who pay ticket fare   was the way out. The entry of technologically mediated drama like motion pictures and tele-serials has   eroded the support base of theatrical drama. Nevertheless, it remains alive and kicking. How drama manages to face the onslaught of technologically mediated drama and should drama deserve protection form inter-alia are the main issues uncovered in the book.
