A form of drama that often features everyday characters in funny situations.
Comedies can be written to entertain, but they can also point out faults in society.
Events in a tragedy lead to the downfall of the main character.
This character can be an average person BUT is often a person of great significance, like a king or a heroic figure.
When you think of dramas, you might think of stage plays and the exciting world of theater (actors, costumes, & lights).
However, drama includes more than theater ...
Screen Plays are scripts for film
They include camera angles, and can allow for more
scene changes than a stage play.
Teleplays are scripts written for television
and contain elements similar to screenplays.
Radio plays are scripts that are written
to be preformed as radio broadcasts.
They include sound effects
and require no set, stage or
directions that explain movement.
