Overview

The study of dramatic texts and performance practices provides insights into human experiences and locates these experiences in the context of social history. This course examines the rise of modern theatre and drama, placing it in its socio-political context.

This course provides a study of a number of representative plays, both as texts to be read and, where possible, as performances. The plays are considered in terms of the dramatic movements they exemplify. Areas of study include: the Restoration, French Neoclassicism, popular theatre and melodrama, rise of realism/naturalism, and late 20th century theatrical experimentation.
