The Finest of Classical Plays (Both Tragedy AND Comedy)

The very finest of the best: the Classical world (Greek especially) gave us some of the finest drama in the history of the form. Here are my very, very favourites: both tragic and comic, with a couple of Roman comedies added for good measure! Hope you enjoy them :-). Due to its state of preservation I've used the Roman theatre at Aspendos for the list image.
