In the play you will study in this lesson, you will discover some characters who jump to conclusions. Reading a play is very different from reading a short story or novel. Instead of having long passages of description about characters and setting, all of the action of the play is told through dialogue and stage directions.
In this lesson, you will be able to use textual evidence to draw your own conclusions about characters in works of drama, and you will learn how to explain a playwright’s use of dialogue and stage directions.
