Drama games = therapy.

Posted on

1. You understand that "Sorry I have rehearsals" is a valid excuse and doesn't mean you're being rude.

Doing Drama means having a pretty tight schedule, and you're both aware of that.

2. You know basically everything about each other, because you've played so many drama games together.

Drama is basically therapy, which means you've seen each other at your best and your worst.

3. You know each other's routines for just before you go on stage.

You know whether your BFF is the kind of person who needs time alone to collect their thoughts, or whether they'll want you by their side.

4. You've experienced each other at your most tired and worn out, but you love each other regardless.

Somehow you even manage to make each other laugh after a full-day rehearsal.
