• Plot – What happens in the play, “arrangement of the incidents,” with beginning, middle and end

• Characters – Who carries out those actions, also symbolic, and interwoven with the plot

• Thought – What those actions mean symbolically, the theme(s) • Diction – How those characters express themselves, from language to dialogue to delivery

• Song – More than just music, the rhythm and melody of speech as well • Spectacle – Visual support ... scenery, costumes, special effects
