ANCIENT GREECE

THEATRE

When Did It Begin?

The Greek theatre history began with festivals honouring the Gods. Theatre comes for the word “theatron” meaning "seeing place" while drama comes form the word “dran” meaning "to do". The first plays were around the 5th Century which would of made the concepts for the plays completely different to today’s theatre.
