This is Where Drama Started.

Greek Theatre -- Drama as Literature (EL 250)

When I was reading Oedipus Rex, I wondered how the Greeks acted these plays out. I can see it now, under the afternoon sky while people were sitting on the grass or in a forum. It's funny how, when we think about drama, we turn to the classics (Greeks and Romans). It could be just me...but I believe that the acting community has lost touch with the way classic theater does things. We see in Oedipus Rex how we get to the plot without that much detail, it keeps the audience guessing. They're very few contemporary plays that does that. Do you think the same way? Let me know.
