Everybody likes a little drama. At least when it comes to entertainment, drama has remained the staple since its inception more than 2000 years ago. Drama became known as "theatre" in England and France and then rapidly acquired popularity throughout Europe. Drama encourages divergent thinking and the same can be said for London theatre drama shows. The Elizabethan period saw the beginning of the golden age of drama in the European theatre, which helped to pave the way for international play. Since then, London has established itself as a major global venue for theatrical shows, and tickets for London theatre drama shows are in high demand. Many people agree that drama has the capacity to enhance empathy in everyone, regardless of age. So, if you're in for some good quality entertainment, you cannot go wrong with a London theatre drama show.

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.
