Forms of Drama
A few forms of drama have been dealt with in this chapter. The radio play is, first of all, a drama. It is a form of audio storytelling broadcast on radio. With no visual component, radio drama depends on dialogue, music and sound effects to help the listener imagine the story(melos).
It can take place in an aeroplane, down a goldmine, on a ship; it can also take place within the confines of somebody's mind. All this can be done for a fraction of what it would cost to do the same in film. But in every case the audience has to be attracted, and its kept in mind held by the means of sound alone.
Here are some suggestions on what you should and what you should not do while writing a Radio Play. Radio has no scenes in the way a stage play has. A sequence in a radio play might be one line long, or last for 20 pages but no single sequence should go beyond its natural length. Beware of boring the listener. Radio is fatally easy to turn off.
The only means of establishing a character's presence is to have them speak or be referred to by name. If there are too many characters in a scene the listener will lose track. "Stage directions" for the producer's or actor's benefit are to be avoided. If it is important it should be there in the dialogue or as voice directions.
