ENG 125 - Creative Writing: Drama

This course is designed to provide students with the opportunity to practice the art of creative writing.

Drama Defined

Definition:  A prose or verse composition, especially one telling a serious story, that is intended for representation by actors impersonating the characters and performing the dialogue and action.

Elements: 

  • Structure -- This deals with how to setup the beginning, middle and end of a play and is even more crucial in drama than any other genre of writing.
  • Characters -- People will act out the story on stage. Characters should be well-developed and not appear as stereotypes.
  • Dialogue -- This is crucial in plays because everything happens through the spoken word.
  • Theme -- Plays often deal with universal themes which encourage discussion of ideas. 
  • Production -- Costumes, props and lighting are some of the necessary items for putting on a play.
