As it pertains to Theatre

How it all began

Theatre began with primitive cultures acting out stories and legends to educate the people of their tribes or groups.

It's all Greek to me

The Greeks, in about the 6th century BC started a festival to honor the god, Dionysus. A chorus would act out the stories of gods while narrating them with song.
