Greek Drama is the earliest form of western drama recorded.  This term we will be exploring some classic texts and different ways it can be performed today.  We will be interrogating a variety of translations of the original Greek texts, looking at mask work and melodrama. The term will cumulate in a performance of an extract of a Greek tragedy.
