Even those you were wont to take such delight in, the tragedians of the city.

If I were in the market for naming a theatre company, I’d consider this one. What’s interesting though is that this company of players is not identified by name but by their specialization and home-base. What does it take to become THE tragedians of the city? Is there only one company doing tragedies? Or did they beat out the other aspiring tragedians with a Priam-Off and the other companies were compelled to slink off to either become the tragedians of the rural township or the comedians of the city of the cabaret-ists of the city or the melodramatists of the city or the absurdists of the city, leaving this particular company with the title.
