Abstract

Medieval drama was proceeded by Greek and roman drama, and it followed by Elizabethan drama. Greek drama in line with its being the fountain head of modern drama was brought buoyant, full of ideas and was essentially theatrical. It was furnished by the great traditions of the Dionysian and the phallic songs.

Medieval drama arose from the ashes of the roman drama. The fifth century witnessed the collapse of the Roman Empire and the eventual ascension of the Christian church into power. The Christians church abolished drama and categorized actors with prostitutes, thieves and other undesirable elements in the society. Hence, there was no record of playwriting from the   death of Seneca to the beginning of the medieval or middle age.
