December 1, 2006, Newsletter Issue #41: Elements of Drama

Tip of the Week

The primary elements of drama are plot, character, and theme. The theme is the central idea of the work, or the message the writer wishes to impart on the audience. The theme governs the progression of the plot. The plot in turn governs the characters, who move through the plot's conflicts, thereby helping to further develop the theme. Other elements such as irony and symbolism can be added to lend more subtle touches to the drama, making it more human and accessible.
