    Where do we start? Theatre history is old, almost 2,500 or more years old. Although it is now a form of art, the roots of its origin lie deeper. Theatre emerged from ritual activities and would involve the spectator to march in processions or fast. In his Poetics, Aristotle says that theatre is sacred, but only in terms of the healing it offers through vision and does not require any other sacred involvement. With the rapid development of the societies, such performances became non-ritualistic. They would quickly move on to become an autonomous activity. Today, the theatre has almost completely changed. The evolution has led on to turning unrealistic ideas into reality. Technological advancement has also made several things possible, like seeing a 21st-century rendition of famous classic plays in London.

    Classics in the Heart of the Capital

    Plays in the city have been an age-old tradition. While every society consists of performative elements, we distinguish plays as a mode of entertainment and a necessary art form. The word "play" as stage performance is often mistaken for dramas. Although there are plenty of similarities in all art forms that artists perform in front of an audience, drama and classic plays in London are different. Drama refers to a composition, usually in the form of prose that tells a story represented by actors portraying the various characters and speaking the composition's dialogues. In the case of a play, you can call it an activity that intends to amuse. Even if it isn't always the case, many plays are designed to entertain young people. However, numerous highly praised classic plays relate to people of all ages and taste.

    Are you in the mood for some classic stage plays in London? Head to one of the most well-known theatres in the West End for a grand experience. Plays consist of unique elements that will entertain all your senses.
