Asian Development Bank’s Greater Colombo Wastewater Management Project in Sri Lanka used the forum theater concept to conduct 30 street dramas in the capital city of Colombo. Street drama was used because of its potential to mirror people’s daily lives particularly on hygiene practices, use of water, and managing sewer assets—behaviors which the project wanted to influence.
