Talking about ancient Greek theatres, if you are looking for a good drama, you cannot be more in the centre of the centre of a dramatic story.
Here is how Charles Dickens, writer of this historic novel would describe the play: ” It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us,…”
Two beautiful cities, London and Paris, are the two cities of the play and the rest.. well maybe it is for the best not to reveal the whole story just yet..
