Dramedy

Dramedy Play Scripts
Dramedy is a term for a play that mixes comedy with drama. Often used in relation to TV shows, it has also been used to describe plays that are not all light-hearted comedies, but have elements of drama and introduce some serious issues and conflict. Ideally, a drama should include some comedy moments or scenes and comedies often feature conflict that is resolved in a humorous way. SO dramedy is a way of describing a play that has a more even balance of comedy and drama than a comedy script or drama script alone.
