Melodrama

A melodrama is a play or story that often features heroic protagonists and their villainous enemies, with a lot of dramatic scenes and vastly exaggerated emotional responses.

The Play That Goes Wrong

Farce

Farces are often categorised as comedies. Ridiculous characters who face impossible situations, a madcap plot, and wacky humour—often seemingly inappropriate and exaggerated—are the most common elements of this type of drama.

Tragedy

Tragic plays frequently have sold-out performances in the London theatre drama scene. A tragedy has a heartbreaking conclusion and often a flawed protagonist, unlike other forms of drama. Dramas depicting tragedies typically feature dark and sombre themes like hardship and prejudice and the ultimate ruination or downfall of a virtuous character.
