There are many elements to consider when evaluating a play.

Evaluating a Play
aspects for critique

How well does the play fulfill its own conventions?

    • If the play is a tragedy that wants you to feel for the protagonist, has it done that?
  • Are the main characters fully rounded and believable?
    • Do their actions follow from their personalities? Does the play rely on some deus ex machina device?
  • What is the theme?
    • Is it universal? How easy is it to apply to the real world outside of the play?
