'All the world is a stage and all the men and women merely players. They have their exits and their entrances and one man in his time plays many parts'
This famous quote by William Shakespeare holds true, especially today. March 27 has been celebrated all over the world as World Theatre Day since the early 1960s. Before everybody got accustomed to films, watching different kinds of drama, particularly on stage, was the prime form of entertainment.
Drama and theatre is the medium that is the reflection of our society. In various languages, it depicts the cultures and traditions that exist all around the world. Therefore, this day is dedicated to not only celebrate it, but preserve it as well and not let it die down, as it is still very much enjoyed by people everywhere.
The past 12 months have been the most difficult for all venues since World Theatre Day became recognised. Please help share their special day with positive vibes about the future and the great times that lie ahead.
