Drama is a form of theatre that tells a story about people, their actions, and the conflicts that result. Conflict is the key to the movement of a story and is what qualifies a thearical work as a “play.” Conflict is at the core of drama. Both theatre and drama have three qualities that make them unique art forms; theatre is always live which means theatre cannot be replayed like a film, they are always about human beings, they are often collaborative forms of art requiring more than one type or art and artist to produce. Most common categories of theatre: Commercial theatre-includes big musicals as well as comedies and dramas that are intended to be entertaining and profitable;offer safe themes, plenty of laughs, and spectacle designed to appeal to a majority of people Historical theatre-presents dramas that use the styles, themes, and staging of plays of a particular historical period; however, the themes are still relevant

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
