Spirit Shared

Susan Glaspell, quoting George Cook of the Provincetown Players:

"On man cannot produce drama. True drama is born only of one feeling animating
all the members of a clan -- a spirit shared by all and expressed by the few for
the all. If there is nothing to take the place of the common religious purpose
and passion of the primitive group, out of which the Dionysian dance was born,
no new vital drama can arise in any people."
