Professor Mithal Madlool Chellab 2014Introduction Drama employs language to present a story or series of events intended to be performed Drama as a literary genre is realized in performance, which is why it describes as "staged art". As a literary form, it is designed for the theatre because characters are assigned roles and they act out their roles as the action is enacted onstage. These characters can be human beings, dead or spiritual beings, animals, or abstract qualities. Modern Drama is an adaptation, recreation and reflection of reality on stage. Generally, the word, dramatist is used for any artist who is involved in any dramatic composition either in writing or in performance. In fact, Drama is different from other genres of literature. It has unique characteristics that have come about in response to its peculiar nature. Really, it is difficult to separate drama from performance because during the stage performance of a play, drama brings life experiences realistically to the audience.

Drama is therefore presented in dialogue. Drama, therefore, uses language in the form of dialogue or gesture to present
