Does A Script Need A Hero?

The first thing to do here is define "hero." Well, at least to say what a hero need not necessarily be. The hero need not necessarily be good or altruistic or similar.

Then we come to see the hero more as a protagonist and the question becomes, do we need a protagonist?

Well, the important thing to remember is that the story will need to involve change.

You can concentrate that change, or watch it carried through, by a protagonist or spread that out a little with an ensemble.

So we can conclude that the story does not need a hero per say, but that some focal point, be it an individual or group, helps.
