From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Drama is a genre of fiction and narrative that describes performances (of film, television, radio, or live theatre) intended to be more serious than humorous in tone.[1] In this sense, a dramatic work can be called "a drama" and is the opposite of a comedy. To distinguish from the use of the word drama to generally mean any live performance, a drama is often specified as a drama show or a drama film.
