Dramaturgy is a concept used to explain the ways that humans as social creatures are involved in various ways of social interactions, and possess a concept of a 'front stage' and 'backstage' to our personalities. Through comic books and manga, we can analyze the backstage and front stage of the characters in place, and come to understand the dramaturgy of our own lives.
