Plays sometimes have Character and/or Cast List. These should be formatted as an unordered list. To learn more see the Unordered List Section.
Q: I am editing a play. All the dialogue begins with the characters name, e.g. Character: Dialogue. This part is clear, but I am wondering if there is anything special you want me to do with the stage directions. Maybe an inline producers note indicating it is a stage direction and not dialogue?
A: Good question. The stage directions are normally marked as "asides" or "sidebars". We can follow the guidelines for sidebar content.
