This awe-inspiring Greek Play comes from the beginning of modern theatre. The character of Hades instils fear in the hearts of audiences but Dionysus’ frequent blunders give comic relief.
A sense of the conflict between modern and old is given in the competitions between Aeschylus and Euripides, which gives a sense of reality to this otherwise comical and fantastical sketch.
Hades: Samuel Holmes
