So what is a Theatre Tradition?

Yes. This dreary question that needs addressing for the RC. Well here is yet further light on the subject Definition of a Theatre Tradition for the purposes of this exercise - A tradition has a set of given conventions. - A tradition is a theatre practice that has developed into a fixed form with fixed conventions and tradition either over time or due to the nature of the culture from which it derives. Thus: Pantomime, Weimar Classicism, Noh, Chinese Opera, Kyogen are acceptable. But not dancing or make up. Trivial Question : What was the magic realism in Truly, Madly, Deeply?
