In a play, what does spectacle mean?

I know that it is a tool that a playwright uses, but I'm not sure what it means. or how to look for it in a play. I am reading M. Butterfly, A Raisin in the Sun, and Death of a Salesman. It would be good if someone can please help me with a Raisin in the Sun. That is the first one I have to write a paper on.... show more I know that it is a tool that a playwright uses, but I'm not sure what it means. or how to look for it in a play. I am reading M.
