Encyclopedia > Stage play

A stage play is a dramatic work intended for performance before a live audience, or a performance of such a work. The term is most common in the United States and Canada. In other parts of the English-speaking world it is usually simply called a play.

By implication a stage play usually takes place on a stage in a theatre. However, live performances in other venues can be called stage plays. The term does not generally include musicals, dance, opera, and other forms of dramatic presentation not based on dialogue.

Andrew Wetmore: Stage Plays (667 words)
My recent writing for the stage has been in two flavors: plays for general consumption to be produced by community or professional groups, and plays for faith communities, to be produced within and for those communities.
The plays can be performed individually or joined to other plays, but together they give a fun workout to the cast and a delightful and thought-provoking evening to the audience.
Plays included in Acting in Faith are governed by the royalty and use guidelines for that resource.
