Q/A: Dramatic Context

Q: What is the meaning of dramatic context? – Shyam Prasad Neerati

Thanks for your question Shyam.

Dramatic context simply refers to the context (situation) in which the drama (story) occurs – the who, where, when.

For example, the film Stand by Me tells a coming-of-age story in the context of four boys on a journey to see a dead body. 

The Shawshank Redemption is a story of hope told in the context of an innocent man in prison.
