Greek Drama first developed during the 6th Century BC.
It stemmed from choral presentations honouring the gods.
There was an annual competition held each spring, during the festival honouring the god Dionysus.
The two distinct products of this era were the Comedy and the Tragedy. These two masks, comedy and tragedy, have
come to represent drama.
