    Hi, I was wondering if a section in a play I want to referrence is stage craft or stage directions.

    In the section the playwrite simply writes that the main character "consumes a drink with his back to the audience".

    Can someone please tell me the difference between the two also, thanks

    Your ultimate answer is it is stage directions.

    Stagecraft is just the skill or experience of writing plays. So that would be something like "Shakespeare's stagecraft illustrates the importance of..."

    Stage directions is when the play tells the actor where or how to move. Where to enter and where to appear. So, your example would be a stage direction.
