Irish Plays and Politics
THEA 303
Spring 2008
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: ENGL 301

The tumultuous relations between Ireland and England are reflected in Irish plays and performances from the past three centuries. Those relations worsened as native Irish lost freedoms, rights, and lands to English colonizers, provoking rebellion and revolution in Irish politics and subversive wit and humor in Irish plays. This course tracks those historical events and play productions to reveal how Irish writers and performers used words, song, and buffoonery to combat repression.
