Abstract: Drama in India has been the mainstream source of entertainment for ages. It is in fact the oldest form of entertainment. It has for centuries survived as a way of life rather than an organised event. Stories from religious scripts were being performed on various events. However the Modern Indian Drama came into existence only in the early eighteenth century. The major factors that created a great impact on the growth of Modern Drama may be considered to be: Colonial Cities, Indigenous Theatres, Playwrights, Ticket. With the development of these concepts Modern Indian Theatre grew substantially.
Keywords: Drama, Modern Indian Theatre, Playwrights, Tickets, Urban Cities.
