When it comes to the theatre, any theatre, Athenian playwright Aeschylus is certainly one of the most important writers to have created words for actors to speak. Although he was not the first playwright in ancient Athens, he is credited with having brought Greek Tragedy to maturity. Often called the Father of Tragedy, Aeschylus was born about nine years after the first actor in the Athenian theatre, Thespis, gave his first performance.
