But you suspect it might be a tragedy - a serious drama typically describing a conflict between the protagonist and a superior force (such as destiny) and having a sorrowful or disastrous conclusion that elicits pity or terror.
Or you know, maybe it's a hybrid, a comedy with tragic undertones. Or a tragedy with comedic overtones.
Maybe it's all a joke. Or just a sad tale.
As a character in the drama, what if you wake up? What if you ask in the middle of the show, "Hey guys, is this a comedy or a tragedy?" Would that be a way to change the gist of it? Turn it all upside down?
