KILLER SHAWL COLLECTION #2
Tragedy & Comedy
The classic definition depends on how the work ends, if it comes to “happy” conclusion, that is, everyone is satisfied with the outcome, it is considered a comedy, even though it may not have a single giggle written into it. A tragedy is a work that ends in fear of some kind. Death, unresolved conflict, struggle. Those are examples of a tragic ending.
This seems to me very sinister yet playful. However you proceed with the course of the project, I think you’ll be very pleased with the outcome.
