The very idea of choosing 50 best plays will make some people furious and others confuse. How exactly one chooses just 50 from countless works of dramatic art that have been written for centuries? One factor is long-term popularity; another, which cannot be completely cut from the first, is universality. Both questions were part of the decision-making process when compiling the list that follows, and factors such as historical importance and influence were also key. The result is a list that runs from the ancient Greek Tragedy to Shakespeare's comedy to American family dramas and even some modern experimental works. Just because the title is constantly revived, does that make it better? Not really. If a game won Tony Award, does that automatically win it place here? Nope. You ' ll notice that there are no Broadway musicals here, either. With that saying, here's a list. Let the debates start! What not this Tragedy has? There's sublime poetry, rich psychology for characters from both sexes, hefty dose of comedy to leaven the mood, and, depending on the director's interpretation, to break down the good mystery under the tale of the Melancholy Dane.

Origins of Comedy Plays

Comedy, along with tragedy, was one of two main dramatic forms of the ancient Greek theatre. The athenian Comedy is conventionally divided into three periods: Old Comedy, Middle Comedy and New Comedy. The Old Comedy survives today largely in the form of eleven-way independent works of Aristophanes, while New Comedy is mostly known for the substantial fragments of Menander. The Middle Comedy is largely lost, that is, preserved only in relatively short fragments by authors such as Athenaeus of Naucratis. Ancient Comedy, dating from the establishment of democracy by Kleisthenes, around 510 ecb, emerged from obscene jests by Dionysian revelers, composed of virulent abuse and personal vilification. The satire and abuse were direct against some object of popular aversion. Comedy uses tragedy techniques, its coral dances, its masked actors, its meters, its landscape mechanism and stage, and above all the elegance of the language of the Attic, but used for the purposes of the satire and ridicule. The Middle-Comedy hemispheres chorus, and transfers ridicule from a single person to human foibles in general. The transition in Comedy from Old to Middle represented an important step forward in the artistic nature of the comic drama, from one of pure ridicule to address the greatest question of the foibles of human nature. In Athens, comedies became an official part of the festival celebration at 486 BCE, and the awards were offered for the best productions. As with tragedians, few works still remain of great comic writers. From works of previous writers, there only a few works by Aristophanes exist. These works represent an important advance in comic presentation. Its mocked everyone and all institutions. Aristophanes is the ancestor for much of the later comic theatre. For the boldness of fantasy, for the unskilled insult, for unskilled indecency, and for the outrageous and free political critique, there's nothing to compare with the comedies of Aristophanes. During the 4th century BCE, there developed what was called New Comedy. Menander is considered the best of its writers. However, nothing remains from his competitors, so it's hard to make comparisons. Plays of Menander, of which only Dyscolus now exist, they don ' t deal with big public issues on which aristotle writes. He concentrates instead in fictional characters from everyday life: stern parents, young lovers, intriguing slaves and others.
