About drama plays!

A drama is a story enacted onstage for a live audience. Like the plot of a story, the plot in a play involves characters who face a problem or conflict. A tragedy is a play that ends in an unhappy way. These plays put human limitations against the larger forces of destiny. There's also comedies that end happily. They're usually based on romance. They have comic complications that always occur before the conflict is solved. There's also modern comedies, they can be tragic, comedic, or both. Ordinary people always play the roles. The last kind is a modern drama. The modern playwrights often experiment with unconventional plot structures.
