Provocative Plays and Theatrical Imagination
THEA 170
Fall 2012 not offered

From Sophie Treadwell's "Machinal" through Leroi Jones (Amiri Baraka) "Dutchman" to Suzan-Lori Parks "Top Dog/Under Dog," American playwrights have sought to challenge and provoke audiences and the culture at large. Through scene readings, oral presentations, and open discussion, this course examines the uniquely American theatrical voice. Students will examine these plays and others through the eyes of the creative team--that is, directors, actors, and designers.
