Performing Values: Ethical Questions in Modern Theater|
Theater enacts, celebrates, and criticizes a society's values and practices. In this course we will study three classic modern plays and four contemporary playwrights to see how men and women of different races have used language, performance, and the scenic arts to entertain, engage, and challenge audiences to reexamine their lives.
