*Compare and contrast its stone skene with the wooden Phlyakes stage.

i.What possibilities and limitations for performance does each type of scene building allow or impose?*

The advantage of the temporary wooden Phlyakes is its possible ability to be deconstructed and adapted to each play, wheras the permenant stone skene is less maliable in the respect that it would be typecast to a certain type of performance, eg tragedy.

ii.The action of the Eumenides is set in three locations. What are they?

The first location of action in the Eumenides is outside the Temple of Apollo at Delphi. Next the action moves inside the Temple of Apollo. Finally the action moves to Acropolis the Temple of Athene, where the play closes.

iii.How might these scene changes have been staged?

The scene changes might have been helped by a significant change in the chorus' movements, to create the desired atmosphere for the following scene.
