   schema:description ""The more we learn about the original production of tragedies and comedies in Athens, the more it seems wrong even to call them plays in the modern sense of the word," write the editors in this collection of critically diverse and innovative essays aimed at restoring the social context of ancient Greek drama. Theatrical productions, which included music and dancing, were civic events in honour of the god Dionysos and were attended by a politically stratified community, whose delegates handled all details from the seating arrangements to the qualifications of choral competitors. The growing complexity of these performances may have provoked the Athenian saying "nothing to do with Dionysos", implying that theatre had lost its exclusive focus on its patron. This collection considers how individual plays and groups of dramas pertained to the concerns of the body politic and how these issues were presented in the conventions of the stage and as centrepieces of civic ceremonies.
