Excerpt from Term Paper :

Their plays were similar to the Greeks and many of them were just translated versions. Theatre was an instrument used by the administration to keep the public from devoting much time to the political affairs. Thus any mentioning on stage regarding the political situation or activities would have serious consequences for the author for writing it and the actor for agreeing to perform it. In addition it also served as a purpose to get away from everyday life and worries. It was a part of their life and civilization. As time passed by the theatre evolved but women were not allowed to take part in it for a very long time. With the establishment of churches and the influence of popes, women faced yet another problem in getting accepted as being part of the society. Roman theatre was a major influence on the later European theatre and they learnt much from the Romans. It has played an important part in the beginning and evolution of the European theatre. Thus it is necessary for everyone especially children to know about the Roman theatre so that they would be exposed to more ideas and their mind and thoughts would be more open.
