When reading a play, it’s important to use stage directions in order to understand the play better. Stage directions are useful for a better understanding of all the things that are not possible to be understood with just the dialogs. Information about location, about the movement or placement of the actors and of other elements in the scene, the appearance of the characters, their emotions and gesticulations. Sounds or smells are also described in stage directions. Without them, it’s not possible to read a play properly and understand what the writer imagined or wanted the reader to imagine while reading it.

He was a big shot up at school and he went to all the big dances and he was the best dancer in town except Harold Wright who didn't count because he'd been to college in New York for two years! Don't you see? This was different.
