The very beginning of Greek theatre started all the way back in 6th century B.C. still even through it was so long ago we still see its effects today in modern dramas. Little is fully known about early Greek theatre because not much information has survived the centuries. Over time new theories and ideas have arisen around the true nature of Greek theatre but there is a solid basic idea of what Greek theatre involved. However what makes it difficult to understand the entirety of Greek theatre is that it was constantly changing and evolving. The size of the chorus, number of actors, structure of performances, costume style – all of these aspects changed over the years.
So how does Greek theatre affect modern dramas? In Greek tragedies you would often see tender topics such as war, politics, gender and world violence which is all too similar to today’s dramas. We see this sort of thing in movies, TV shows and sometimes documentaries. One example is the Greek play Ajax written by the ancient Greek playwright Sophocles. This play has a lot of modern themes such as suicide politics and deceit which are all big topics these days.
