Oedipus replies that he already sent his brother-in-law, Creon, to the oracle at Delphi to learn how to help the city. Creon returns with a message from the oracle: the plague will end when the murderer of Laius, former King of Thebes, is caught and expelled; the murderer is within the city. Oedipus questions Creon about the murder of Laius, who was killed by thieves on his way to consult an oracle. Only one of his fellow travelers escaped alive. Oedipus promises to solve the mystery of Laius’s death, vowing to curse and drive out the murderer.

  • During this time, major theatres were constructed, notably the theatre at Delphi, the Attic Theatre and the Theatre of Dionysus in Athens. The Theatre of Dionysus, built at the foot of the Acropolis in Athens, could seat 17,000 people. During their heyday, the competitions drew as many as 30,000 spectators. The words theatre and amphitheatre derive from the Greek word theatron, which referred to the wooden spectator stands erected on those hillsides.

Greek masks

Greek masks

  • The reasons that Greek theatrical masks were worn by the actors of ancient Greek plays included things like visibility.

  • Because the plays were often performed in large outdoor amphitheaters, it was difficult to see the details of the actor's face.

  • The masks also helped with acoustics, making the actors easier to hear in the large theaters.

  • Another good reason for the use of these masks were so that they did not need a lot of people for the play. An actor could play several parts when using masks for each different character. Another use for the masks was to aid in characterization. Characters could be exaggerated and easy to tell apart with the use of masks.
