This course offers the student an historical and theoretical journey through theatrical and dramatic literature. Through a contextual study of some of the most read and performed plays from the classical tradition, covering ancient Greek, Shakespearean, and neo-classical drama, this course provides students with foundational techniques in textual analysis, academic debate, research, essay writing and scholarship in drama. It will include a focus on the ways in which these stories continue to be staged, adapted, and re-written in early twenty-first century contexts.
