The plays are all famous and have been used in benchmarking performance theatre and plays because of their classical and creative nature that is by itself a style of plays. Coincidentally all the scandals in all the plays involve a woman or women.
If that was not a coincidental mistake, then, it was a strategic style in bringing up the theme and ensuring that the effectiveness of the plot outline reveals itself in a good and comprehensible manner. The plays typically use women in the different scandals like the one’s instigating them or facilitating then in some way.
