Suspension of disbelief
Suspension of disbelief is a dramatic convention justifying the use of unrealistic stories. It is when you put aside our doubt or skepticism for the sake of a good story, even if the story is unrealistic or full of nonsense, and allow yourself imagination to drift with the story.
For example, suspension of disbelief in Shakespeare is that a character can move downstage to deliver a soliloquy which cannot be heard by the other characters on stage. The other example could be seen in a musical, when the characters are not surprised by another character bursting into song.
*Dramatic convention: the specific actions or techniques the actor, writer or director has employed to create a desired dramatic effect/style.
