Drama
Drama
Drama
is the specific mode of fiction represented in performance; a play performed in a theatre, or on radio or television.[1] Considered as a genre of poetry in general, the dramatic mode has been contrasted with the epic and the lyrical modes ever since Aristotle's Poetics (c. 335 BC)—the earliest work of dramatic theory.[2] The term "drama" comes from a Greek word meaning "action" (Classical Greek: δρᾶμα, drama), which is derived from "I do" (Classical Greek: δράω, drao). The two masks associated with drama represent the traditional generic division between comedy and tragedy. They are symbols of the ancient Greek Muses, Thalia, and Melpomene

Nun
A nun is a member of a religious community of women, typically living under vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience in the enclosure of a monastery.[1] While in common usage the terms nun and religious sister are often used interchangeably, they represent different forms of religious life; nuns are historically associated with living an ascetic life of prayer and contemplation in a monastery or convent, while religious sisters are devoted to an active vocation of prayer and charitable works in areas such as education and healthcare. Communities of nuns or religious sisters exist in numerous religious traditions, including Christianity, Jainism, Buddhism, Taoism, and Hinduism. In the Buddhist tradition, female monastics are known as Bhikkhuni, and take additional vows, compared to male monastics (bhikkhus); they are most common in Mahayana Buddhism, but have more recently become more prevalent in other traditions
