How do props make a play more interesting?

Expert Answers

Props make a play more interesting in many ways.  Without props, a play seems less life-like.  Very rarely does a person walk around and not interact with anything around him or her.  People touch things, hold things, gesture to things.  Without props, actors would have nothing to interact with, nothing to make them seem more genuine.
