A Cultural History of Theatre in Antiquity provides a comprehensive and interdisciplinary overview of the cultural history of theatre in Graeco-Roman antiquity. Drawing together contributions from leading scholars, this volume examines the Greek and Roman cultural spheres in conjunction. Each chapter takes a different theme as its focus, including institutional frameworks; social functions; sexuality and gender; the environment of theatre; circulation; interpretations; communities of production; repertoire and genres; technologies of performance, and knowledge transmission.
