Abstract : Entertainment is not the sole purpose of Roman theatres. The staging of plays could only take place under strong civic regulations, within a precise time frame ; plays were paid for and set up by aristocrats ; buildings reflected Roman conceptions of the world as a cosmos and of society as a hierarchical organization. This entails that Roman theatres are rightly seen as political places by the Ancient themselves, places where actors and audience alike made a major contribution to the city public life. This is true both in Rome and in the Provinces, and under the Republic as well as during the Principate.
