Wee drink ahead of a play (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

drama

Here is my best explanation:

'play' is the definition.

('drama' can be a synonym of 'play')

'wee drink ahead of a' is the subsidiary indication.

'wee drink' becomes 'dram' (I've seen this before**).

'ahead of' means one lot of letters go next to another (I've seen this in other clues).

'dram'+'a'='drama'

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for drama that I've seen before include "Turbulent emotional episode", "Play - excitement", "Literary genre for the stage", "Exciting series of events", "Emotional situation", "Serious play", "Play, emotional series of events", "Theatrical production", "Play (as a genre)" and "Plays as a genre".)
