Plays for Performance|
This course aims to provide first-year students with a substantial body of dramatic texts to discuss and analyze in terms of their performance possibilities in various times and different cultural contexts, as well as for today's audience. Plays under study are drawn from both classical works and outside the canon. Students attend plays in production at Wesleyan and other theaters during the semester that will be added to the class discussions and written assignments.
