From Page to Stage: Acting the Realists
THEA 248
Spring 2013 not offered

Approaching three core texts of theater and realism, this class aims to expose students to the tools of textual analysis, character development, and behavior manifestation--all for the purpose of performance. Through key works of Henrik Ibsen, Anton Chekhov, and Eugene O'Neill, the students will understand the roots of this revolutionary form of writing for the stage. The class will cover the basic elements of giving performative life to characters that exist solely in the imagination of the playwright as words on a page.
