The author suggests that the adaptation of Old Comedy and Aristophanes, in particular, to modern taste in both language and content can show the essence of the genre and communicate with a wider audience. As Aristophanes and the tragedians wrote for a wider audience, the modern language script should appeal to the expectations and experience of the modern audience.
