    I'm doing English Language Edexcel and I have to write a 'dramatic monologue' that is scripted for a single voice to be performed for a listening or watching audience.

    My only question here is what is meant by 'dramatic'. Do they mean 'dramatic' as in not 'comedic' or are they just highlighting it is for entertainment purposes?

    Thank you for any advice in advance!

    The distinction at GCSE is unimportant. It can be both dramatic and comedic I should imagine.
    If in doubt just write a dramatic text.
