Theatrical properties or props are an important tool for any director whether of film, or stage. They can make or break a scene or an entire production. Your audience will notice even the smallest things.
With that in mind, below is an interesting video edited and narrated by Rishi Kaneria.
If you wish to view the transcript for the video, it is available on Tumblr at this link.

A property, commonly shortened to prop (plural: props), is an object used on stage or on screen by actors during a performance or screen production. In practical terms, a prop is considered to be anything movable or portable on a stage or a set, distinct from the actors, scenery, costumes and electrical equipment. Consumable food items appearing in the production are also considered properties.
