Synopsis

The course commences with an historical overview of Australian theatre and concludes at the beginning of the 21st century with an exploration of contemporary theatre. Throughout the course, students will study some of the social, political, economic and artistic elements and key writers who have shaped Australian drama and its theatre. The course attempts to represent a diversity of "voices" in Australian drama, and will draw upon plays, articles and other secondary materials to explore various relevant socio-political and economic issues as they relate to identification. Within this exploration, the dramatic and thematic aspects of the plays will be emphasised.
