Welcome to The Ancient Greeks podcast series by Cambridge For Kids. This fifth episode looks at Literature and The Theatre. One of the favourite forms of entertainment for the Ancient Greeks was the Theatre. It began as part of a festival to the Greek god Dionysus, but eventually became extremely popular amongst the public and nobility. Literature and theatre was an important aspect of Greek culture and influenced modern drama, bringing together elements of myth, ritual, religion, dance and music.
