i don't know what play you're talking about, but i can tell u for a fact that the purpose of high theatricality in general is to exaggerate the personalities and traits of the characters, esp. in Greek dramas. it's meant to add more life into the characters and make them be able to relate to us, because we humans too have such feelings!
