There are absolutely no rules for a Shakespearean comedy! All of Shakespeare's comedies are zany and silly and fun; certainly not governed by things like rules. However, many of his comedies have commonalities. Most involve a love story, and often a love triangle or two; many involve mistaken identities or disguises, and all of them must have a happy ending.

William Shakespeare's problem plays. Shakespeare's plays are usually categorised as Comedies, Tragedies and Histories. These categories were applied to the titles of the plays in the first, officially published editions, known as The First Folio. For example, the full title of "Hamlet" in this edition is "The Tragical History of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark." Typically, the Comedies have a happy ending, often a wedding, and the Tragedies end in the deaths of several major characters - there are, of course many more subtle differences. In the 19th Century, critics identified "All's Well That Ends Well", "Measure for Measure" and "Troilus and Cressida" as Problem Plays. While these were classified as Comedies in the original editions, they contain darker, more serious themes than the other comedies, and Troilus and Cressida has neither a happy nor a tragic ending. They are problem plays because they contain tragedy and comedy, and cannot easily be classified as one or the other.

They went to see dramas or comedies. A drama was when the main character went through many struggles but did not overcome the struggle. Acomedy was a story with a happy ending. Hope i helped!

A tragedy is distinguished by its unpleasant ending which frequently encompasses the death of the main character (Death of a Salesman, Hamlet) or his total destruction (Oedipus Rex). A comedy generally has a happy ending for all concerned, and a plot which can contain elements of slapstick or farce. (But not necessarily--romantic comedies do not usually have such elements) Many plays cannot be slotted into either category because the ending is ambiguous--happy for some and unhappy for others, or slightly more unhappy or slightly more happy than it was at the beginning for most or all of the characters. This is true of most modern plays but also some classical ones, such as Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida.

The most apparent difference in Shakespearean tragedy and comedy is the ending of the story. Shakespearean tragedies end in the death of the main character. Shakespearean comedies end in marriage. Another difference is the story type and character types. Tragedies involve both internal and external conflict, family strife and opposing characters. Comedies have external conflict, comedic characters and a light-hearted, pun filled tone.

The "problem plays" were comedies which did not fit into the artificial definitions academics created for comedies, and which were written by Shakespeare at about the same time as his great tragedies. Measure for Measure and All's Well that Ends Well appear to turn out well for everyone at the end but the plots deal with some serious issues and the ending is ambiguous. This is even more true of Troilus and Cressida where at the end of the play everyone is alive but miserable, except for Hector and Patroclus who died part way through the play.

A number of people end up dead at the end, including the main characters. It's a sad ending.

Most of the comedies have happy endings involving many people getting married. The "problem plays" (Measure for Measure, All's Well that Ends Well, and Troilus in Cressida) are comedies where the happy ending is not as happy as it might look on the surface. (Some people would nowadays put The Taming of the Shrew into that category as well) Some of the comedies have characters for whom the play does not end well: Twelfth Night does not end well for Malvolio or for Sir Andrew; The Merchant of Venice ends very badly for Shylock. Some of the Histories have happy endings: Henry IV Part I ends well for everyone except Hotspur; Part II ends well for everyone except Falstaff (and he is only disappointed, not dead); Henry V has a happy ending, but with a warning that the happiness doesn't last long. Richard III, on the other hand, is as tragic as Macbeth, with which it shares the same basic plot.

Lots and lots. Some plays like A Midsummer Night's Dream, are full of them. Even plays that don't rhyme often have rhymes at the end of a scene or long speech to emphasize the fact that this is an ending, such as "The play's the thing/ Wherein I'll catch the conscience of the king." (Hamlet)

Aside from the obvious routes maybe you could follow an alternate route of thinking towards greater issues than love, maybe a teenagers inability to meet with their dreams. warring your desires against your parents desires for your life, and the conflicting opinions of your friends, teachers, employers.
