Did you know that in Greek drama only men were allowed to perform on stage? Well I didn't think it was fair when I found that out! The men have to wear these masks so that when the people watch the performances they can see the actor's expression from all the way up at the top of the bleachers! They also wear masks to make the performance more funny if it were comedy or more dramatic if it were a tragedy. This is something really weird and different but they would start their plays in the morning and end the plays at night. If I were in the audiance I would be so tired! Guess what it's all one play! There are only two things the plays would be about, they are tragedy and comedy!
