New Course: Considers American plays of the 20th century, reading
major playwrights of the canon alongside other dramatists who were
less often read and produced. Will also study later 20th century
dramatists whose plays both develop and resist the complex foundation
established by canonical American playwrights and how American drama
reflects and responds to cultural and political shifts. Considers how
modern American identity has been constructed through dramatic
performance, considering both written and performed versions of these
plays. Cross listed with ARTT B230. Enrollment limited to 30 students.
