  • Define the literary term “play”.

  • Identify the differences between a play and prose.


Plays stories acted out
Plays: Stories Acted Out

A play is a story acted out, live and on stage. It presents characters performed by flesh and blood people in a physical setting.



One major point of difference between stories and plays is: of characters carrying out a series of actions, driven by a conflict of some kind.

A story is a prose narrative. In other words, a narrator describes the characters, actions, and setting to you.


  • A play of characters carrying out a series of actions, driven by a conflict of some kind., on the other hand, consists entirely of the characters words and actions. The playwright (author of the play) may describe the setting and characters actions, but people on stage “act” it out for you.

Plot and conflict
Plot and Conflict of characters carrying out a series of actions, driven by a conflict of some kind.

  • The plot of the story relies on conflict.

  • Conflict creates tension for the characters. As conflicts grow more complicated, the tension reaches a climax. ( argument, chase, fight, emotional meeting or love scene usually)

  • Then the conflict is resolved, the action dies down, and then the play ends.
