comment Using “and/or” in a manuscript
I totally agree that using "and/or" in more "formal" writing is unacceptable. The point I tried to make was that using it in "fiction" could be more acceptable. This would be especially true if, as @Nicole and I have mentioned, it is a phrase that is common with your setting and/or characters.

comment Using “and/or” in a manuscript
I guess it all depends on where you are from, but in my parts of Texas, it's not at all uncommon for people to use "and/or" in their dialogue. If it is used in a proper context, there would be nothing wrong with using it in writing. If it is used only one time in a 50,000 word story, then it would not be nearly as acceptable.

comment What is the most important element of a drama, beside its message?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it appears to be more about acting rather than writing.
