Religion vs Theatre

http://www.theguardian.com/stage/theatreblog/2012/mar/13/religion-theatre-hope-in-hell

This article discusses,though not in too much detail, the acts of religion in theatre or religion vs theatre. My question is do you agree that theatre usually undermines religion? Or that it is almost a competition of beliefs. Can theatre be compared to a religion? Or is it an entirely different ball game?

  1. Great article. It is a great example of how religious ritual established the beginning of theatre. Why is it being ignored in theatre? I think it is a temporary stream but it will most likely come back.
