Abstract: The need to mainstream quality dramatic dialogue towards conflicts resolution has over the years been implored by playwrights as an important mechanism. This integration has helped in reshaping the society towards attaining a free, just and egalitarian society devoid of endless restiveness in all spheres that have hindered quality development of the nation. To demonstrate this however, this study finds meaning in Ahmed Yerima's Dami's Cross and J. P. Clark's The Wives Revolt. In both plays, the two playwrights have critically presented the relevance of dramatic dialogue in conflicts mediation. This of course, informs our discourse that drama as a whole have the potential to mediate between groups and proper solutions that will help bring about social transformation in the nation.
