  • ab: "The story of modern drama is a tale of extremes, testing both audiences and actors to their limits through hostility and unpredictability. It is a truly international phenomenon, encompassing works by playwrights such as Ibsen, Chekhov, Shaw, Miller, Beckett, and Churchill, which are vibrant and diverse in both text and performance.
