PLOT

Dionysius, god of the theatre, goes to the underworld to bring Euripides back to life. His journey ends with the arrival of Euripides and Aeschylus who are having a huge argument about who is the greatest tragic poet. Dionysius is called on to judge, and his decision to prefer the sense of justice and the good of the citizens over personal preferences, means that the palm of victory goes to Aeschylus who will return to save Athens from the disastrous situation in which it languishes. Aeschylus returns to the land of the living, leaving his throne on Pluto’s right hand to Sophocles, on the understanding he will never cede it to Euripides.
