PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Greek Theater & Oedipus Rex: the history and background
This is a detailed PDF covering the Greek invention of the theater. It also covers the specifics of the play, Oedipus Rex.

Topics include:
• Greek riddles
• Creation of drama
• Greek’s purpose for drama
• Characteristics of Greek drama (tons of vocabulary, too)
• Masks & actors
• The importance of the chorus in early dramas
• Types of plays
• Tragic hero
• The stage
• Oedipus Rex – characters, setting, themes, plot, etc.
• Literary terms from the play Oedipus Rex


This short play is great to use with middle school and high school students interested in learning more about dramas.

I use Oedipus in my drama unit before covering a Shakespeare play with students. The students are shocked at the Oedipus storyline. This play is excellent to use in the history and/or psychology classroom as well. Many of the themes overlap and would meet the Common Core State Standards in those content areas as well.

**Teacher hint: PBS.com offers a free online PDF Reader's Theater version of the play for classroom use as well.
