One act play ppt

  1. 1. DRAMA TYPES One- Act Plays
  2. 2. One- Act Plays Is similar to a short story in its limitations. There is a complete drama within one act. It is brief, condensed, and single in effect. One situation or episode is presented, permitting no minor plots or side actions that may distract attention for the single purpose and effect being developed. Characters are few in number, quickly introduced, and very limited in character development. Dialogue and Plot must carry the action forward smoothly and quickly.
  3. 3. DEFINITION  A one-act play is a play that has only one act, as distinct from plays that occur over several acts. One-act plays may consist of one or more scenes. In recent years the 10- minute play known as "flash drama" has emerged as a popular sub-genre of the one- act play, especially in writing competitions. The origin of the one-act play may be traced to the very beginning of drama: in ancient Greece, Cyclops, a satyr play by Euripides, is an early example.
  4. 4. Elements of One- Act Play Theme Plot Character Dialogue
  5. 5. Theme  Theme necessary  Ask yourself: What is the play about?  Revenge? Self- discovery?  Mind needs to be clear about the theme  Characters, plots, and sub- plots need to point to and support the theme  Sub- plots might be missing in one- act plays
  6. 6. Plot  Different in one- act play from a full length play  In a one- act play, there is only time for one significant event  Determining place for hero, where all can be won or lost  Events leading to this, can be included without being shown to audience  The events that follow must be inferred or understood by the audience
  7. 7. Character  There is not much area to develop all the characters  The hero or the protagonist’s character needs to be more developed and focused on  The antagonist can be developed to show conflict  Some other characters can also be a little bit developed to move the story forward
  8. 8. Dialogue  Economy is the key aspect here  Each line must be crafted carefully to focus on the theme, the incident and the character of the protagonist  The dialogues need not be terse, but concise and full of meaning  Dialogues irrelevant to the plot, must be altered or omitted immediately
  9. 9. Activity Q. Write a short one- act play which involves two characters following the guideline given below. o First students imagine the situation they want to write about and write it down on a blank sheet of paper o Then they brainstorm the situation to come up with ideas involving:
  10. 10. o the details of the characters, including their relationship and the nature of the problem being explored (two friends, son and father, daughter and father, husband and wife …), o the topic they are talking about o the problem that arises in their conversation o the time and background of the conversation, i. e. the setting o how the play starts and how it ends
  11. 11. Students may then:  Work by themselves or with a partner  Do the drafting at home  Do editing in the classroom with the help of classmates or teacher  Read out the play to the class
  12. 12. Topic suggestions  an older woman, hoping that a film of her life story would both make her rich and free her from her dangerous past  Pamela, a divorced career girl from the suburbs, rides the commuter train back and forth to her glamour job in London. However, Pamela's latest romantic coupling threatens to veer off the track  Revenge is a dish best enjoyed cold, and Grace has been cooking up hers ever since her husband dumped her for Paulette, a younger lighter Second Mrs. Marwick.  Aspiring Playwright calls on Dionysus and Euripides for help in winning a drama contest.  Group of unemployed people in support group try to keep their spirits up while their desperation level rises.
