Types of Drama Drama- is a word often used to describe plays that address serious subjects – Ex: Christmas Carol Comedy-a form of drama that has a happy ending. Humor comes out of the character’s dialogue and situation. These plays are written for entertainment, but it could address a serious issue. -EX: Charlie Brown
Tragedy-a form of drama in which events lead to the downfall of the main character. The character is a person of great significance, like a king or heroic figure. EX: Macbeth King Arthur/Camelot
acts The units of the action in a drama. Acts are often divided into parts called scenes.
dialogue The term given to the words characters say. Quotation marks are not used in a script, which is a printed form of the play. Instead, the words of each character appear next to the character’s name.
Stage directions Sets of bracketed information that tell what the stage looks like and how the characters should move and speak.
Set The construction on stage that suggests the time and place of the action.
Props Movable items—objects like a book, a suitcase, or a flashlight—that the actors use to make their actions look realistic.
Monologue is a speech presented by a single character, most often to express their thoughts aloud, though sometimes also to directly address another character or the audience.
Soliloquy is a device often used in drama whereby a character speaks to himself or herself, relating his or her thoughts and feelings, thereby also sharing them with the audience.
