Well Made Play, Narrator Listen to part of a lecture in a class on theater history The professor is discussing. the theater of nineteenth century France, Professor The nineteenth century was the time that saw what we call realism develop in.
the European theater Uh to understand this though we first need to look at an. earlier form of drama known as the well made play which basically was a. pattern for constructing plays plays that um beginning with some early. nineteenth century comedies in France proved very successful commercially The. dramatic devices used here weren t actually anything new they d been around. for centuries But the formula for a well made play required that certain of these. elements be included in a particular order and most importantly that. everything in the play be logically connected In fact some of these playwrights. would start by writing the end of a play and work backward toward the beginning. just to make sure each event led logically from what had gone before. OK so what are the necessary elements of a well made play Well uh the first is. logical exposition, Exposition is whatever background information you have to reveal to the. audience so they ll understand what s going on Before this time exposition. might have come from actors simply giving speeches Uh someone might walk. out on stage and say In fair Verona where we lay our scene and then tell all. about the feuding families of Romeo and Juliet But for the well made play even. the exposition had to be logical believable So for example uh you might. have two servants gossiping as they re cleaning the house and one says Oh. what a shame the master s son is still not married And the other might mention a. rumor about a mysterious gentleman who s just moved into town with his. beautiful daughter These comments are part of the play s logical exposition. The next key element of a well made play is referred to as the inciting incident. After we have the background information we need a key moment that gets. things moving that really makes the audience interested in what happens to the. characters we just heard about So for example after the two servants reveal all. this background information we meet the young man just as he first lays eyes on. the beautiful young woman and immediately falls in love This is the inciting. incident It sets off the plot of the play, Copyright 2019 by Educational Testing Service All rights reserved ETS the ETS logo TOEFL and TOEFL iBT are registered trademarks of Educational Testing Service ETS in the. United States and other countries IN ENGLISH WITH CONFIDENCE is a trademark of ETS. 4 M2 partB handout transcript of audio docx, Now the plot of a well made play is usually driven by secrets uh things that the. audience knows but the characters often don t know So for example the. audience learns through a letter or through someone else s conversation who this. mysterious gentleman is and why he left the town many years before But the. young man doesn t know about this and the woman doesn t understand the. ancient connection between her family and his, And before the secrets are revealed to the main characters the plot of the play. proceeds as a series of sort of up and down moments For example the woman. first appears not to even notice the young man and it seems to him like the end of. the world But then he learns that she actually wants to meet him too so life is. wonderful Then if he tries to talk with her maybe her father gets furious for no. apparent reason So they can t see each other But just as the young man has. almost lost all hope he finds out well you get the idea the reversals of. fortune continue increasing the audience s tension and excitement making them. wonder if everything s going to come out OK or not. Next comes an element known as the obligatory scene. It s uh it s a scene a moment in which all the secrets are revealed and generally. things turn out well for the hero and others we care about a happy ending of. some sort This became so popular that a playwright almost had to include it in. every play which is why it s called the obligatory scene. And that s followed by the final dramatic element, The denouement or the resolution when all the loose ends have to be tied up in a.
logical way Remember the obligatory scene gives the audience emotional. pleasure but the denouement offers the audience a logical conclusion That s the. subtle distinction we need to try very hard to keep in mind. So as I said the well made play this form of playwriting became the basis for. realism in drama and for a lot of very popular nineteenth century plays and also. a pattern we find in the plots of many later plays and even movies that we see.
