Comedy & Tragedy Mask

Now the universal symbol for theatre or drama, these masks date back to ancient Greece to between 500 and 300 BC, a period known as the Golden Age of Greek drama. They were worn by actors to play different roles or to show different emotions, simply by switching masks.

Plays were performed in purpose built open air theatres to honor the god Dionysus and often before audiences of 10,000 or more. Greek theatre and plays have had a lasting influence on Western drama and culture.
