DRAMA

Julie Neagle

Drama: 1: A play for a theatre, radio or television. 2: An exciting, emotional, or unexpected series of events or set of circumstances.


Drama is a unique tool to explore and express human feeling. Drama is an essential form of behaviour in all cultures, it is a fundamental human activity. Drama consists of: actors/actresses, script, scene, theme, and actions. Drama was known to start in Greek times and was a way of entertainment. It also told stories, myths, and legends. Some were non-fictional but most were for entertainment purposes. Most drama in that time involved religious views and actions. Masks and costumes were used to disquise the actor/actress as the character described in the play.
