"Theatre in Ancient Greek Society" examines the function and impact of the theater in the Greek world. Rather than resting on the interpretation of Greek dramatic texts or relying on written sources that were only intended for a small educated section of the population, Green examines the depictions of actors found on pottery, terracottas, glass, paintings, mosaics, marble sculpture and other everyday sources. "Theatre in Ancient Greek Society" is the first study of Greek drama to use this approach and is the product of the twenty years Professor Green has spent studying the archaeological evidence.
