Modern Drama: Classic Texts and Contemporary Inheritors|
Modern drama is nearly 150 years old and just as vital as ever. This course explores the foundations of the movement in Ibsen, Strindberg, Chekhov, and Brecht, relating each of them to the work of more recent playwrights. Regular scene work by class members supplements the lecture-discussion format.
