Im using dramatist package for writhing a play but the character name font style in this package and dialogue statements font style are same. whereas i prefer the speaker name font style was bold! I search in dramatist.sty file to find code which indicates font style of character but not found. Is there any way to change it? thanks a lot..

    Since most of us are not familiar with dramatist, would you please add a small sample document so we can play with it?

Although it would be greatly appreciated to see your attempts in form of a MWE, here is a solution.

You have to define the \speaksfont-definition. See my MWE.



%% This will print the name of the speaking actor in boldface

%% Define some actors
\Character[Son of the house Montague]{Romeo}{romeo}
\Character[Duaghter of the house Capulet]{Julia}{julia}

  \juliaspeaks O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?\\
  \romeospeaks Have not saints lips, and holy palmers too?

An overview of all the fonts and other settings can be found in the dramatist documentation, chapter 3.7 Configuration settings.
