I am participating in a skit in school about superstition and science.

How much will the presence of emotion attract the attention of the audience? What are other important things to attract attention of audience or to give them a message?

    @iamSiddharthYadav Then maybe you can rephrase your question in the context of your own writing. – user5645 Apr 22 '15 at 4:26

From what I've been told, there are two important parts to a drama: 1) story (or "message" in your words), and 2) characters.

That's because the characters are the medium by which your message is conveyed, and the interaction of the characters produces the plot, or "storyline."

  • I disagree. The core of every tale anyone cares about is a person with a need opposed by an obstacle. In other words: character, goal and antagonist (where antagonist need not be a person). Everything else -- plot, emotions, and so on -- follows from there. Stories for small children, that is stories about the discovery of the world, may differ. – user5645 Apr 22 '15 at 4:32
