There were three main types of Greek theatre which were satyr plays

There were three main types of Greek theatre which were satyr plays, comedy, and most popular tragedy. Mostly a comedy was ironic and made fun of men for their idiocy and narcissism. Today this might look like a sitcom on TV such as Friends or even The Simpsons. A satyr play was performed between acts of a tragedy and made fun of the troubles of the tragedies characters. They were mythical half human, half goat figures and actors. These plays are described as comedy dramas or tragicomics however hardly any of these plays survived. The final and most important genre of Greek theatre is Tragedy. This dealt with difficult topics such as pride, love, loss, relationships troubles between the gods and man and mistreatment of power. Almost always the main character commits a horrible crime unintentionally. As the protagonist realises his mistake, his life seemingly falls apart.
