History of Drama

Here’s an old Powerpoint presentation I did back in college. I cannot remember which class this was from, only that it was from my last 2 years in university.


Drama

Greek; “to do” or “to act”

A drama is a story acted out, showing people going through some eventful period in their lives, whether it be seriously or humorously. Its speech & action recreate the flow of human life, and its language ranges between two extremes: intensely theatrical & ritualistic manner. It usually is an almost exact reproduction of real life.
