Writing History

THEA 289
Spring 2018 not offered
Crosslisting: ENGL 330
Certificates: Writing

This course is an intermediate-level playwriting workshop. We will examine plays that use different dramaturgical strategies to grapple with, question, and invigorate the historical record, including Miller's The Crucible, Jacob Jenkins's An Octaroon, Miranda's Hamilton, and Shakespeare's histories. We will then write original plays that spring from, react to, and grapple with the past as it has been told and hidden from telling. In addition to numerous short exercises, students will research and write a 40-page history play.
