OBJECTIVE SWBATidentify stage directions and analyze author’s purpose in using them
Stage Directions Instructions that describe how a character moves and speaks. – When reading a play’s script, stage directions are often written in italics. – The audience does not hear these instructions. – Instead actors memorize them when they are practicing and then use them as suggestions for how to become a certain character.
Dialogue The words spoken by characters when there are two or more characters speaking together.
Monologue A long speech by one character to another character. – More than one character is on stage, but only one is speaking (for an extended period of time)
Soliloquy Acharacter is alone on stage speaking to him/herself or to the audience. – No other characters are on stage at this time
Dramatic Irony The audience knows something that the characters do not know yet.
