Dramatic London

Different Kinds of Plays

Suppose you've been lucky enough to see any West End plays. In that case, you already know how interesting and compelling they can be and how different people understand them in different ways. There are many types of play to enjoy in the heart of London. Which will you see?

Tragedy – A play with a tragic ending. Do not expect celebrations at the end; it won't be pretty!
Comedy – The complete opposite to tragedy, you'll laugh your socks off. Comedy is one of the most common types of play.
Melodrama – A melodrama is full of strong emotions. You will see the struggle of the hero or heroine and their quest to overcome adversity. Don't worry, though; it usually ends on a happy note!
Tragicomedy – When you can't choose between a tragedy and a comedy, why not experience both in one performance?
Domestic drama – Want to connect immediately? Witness stories of everyday life told brilliantly onstage in a domestic drama.
Symbolic – Although actors perform, this type of play puts all the focus on the idea it wants to share.
