Why did people visit the theater in ancient greece?

The Greeks were highly educated by the standards of those years. They had a lot of free time, because they lived in an area with a favorable climate and fertile soil. They didn’t have to work in the field all day. They also had no need to make the children work – and they could go to schools. The Greeks loved to educate themselves, because literate people in their midst were especially revered.

The Greeks called the theater “a school for adults”. Indeed, in the theater, vices of people were exposed and ridiculed, life situations were considered. The Greeks believed that the theater educates, instills high personal qualities.

One of the components of a person's success in our time is receiving modern high-quality education, mastering the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary for life in society.
