Narrator: The earth spinning around the sun produced the first drama: death in winter, rebirth in spring. The word "drama" means "a thing done." The worshipers of Dionysus went to the theater to get something done, not just for entertainment: to ask for more sun, more rain, more fish out of the sea; or to be made the victors in a coming battle; or to be made healthy, holy, immortal, and/or successful in love, and/or to win the favor of the powerful gods in the unending battle to survive against those gods with malice toward Man.
