Adjective meaning ‘using creative prose/being poetic’

Here’s the context, somebody has written this:

Quiet workplace… then – all of a sudden, a loud voice; complaints,
criticism, aggressiveness. Everyone’s attention is drawn to an
argument – and sometimes the spotlight is on the person being publicly
executed.

And I want to say something like, ‘That paragraph is a bit melodramtic and [uses creative writing for the sake of being entertaining to read], could you edit it to tell us what actually happened?’.

Answer

Perhaps theatrical

characteristic of the theater; dramatic; esp. (in disparagement), melodramatic, histrionic, showy, or affected
