Why's it called Epic Theatre .
Epic relates to episodes, as in a series of independent stories that together form a fuller narrative (with the beginning, middle, and end of… a central theme or character). Brecht's plays are structured in such a way that each act conforms an independent story that when placed in a certain order come together to tell a full narrative and thus an epic. Whilst its debatable if TV shows are true epics (e.g. the lack of a central theme/character, retroactive continuity, etc.) some examples include epic poems such as Beowulf or cartoons such as Dragonball.
