Theater creates illusion that illumines us. The so- called world of make- belief created by theater helps human civilization to encounter universal truths relevant for all times. The plays that claim to be based on real time incidents or those that metaphorically represent reality enable the spectators to realize facts that often are avoided by them in their comfort zones. Theater allows them to explore this world of entertainment that slowly unravels facts in front of people in the non- committal mode as they don't refer to individuals but to the entire community. Since people are not addressed in particular, they enjoy even the gravest of satires that expose human follies and appreciate the stage and its caliber to illumine through pleasure-giving art. This is the illumining illusion of theater and is a must for all to experience since it serves human society at its best- self-realization through " play".
