This course provides an overview of the principles of drama. The class draws on theatre history and social context by examining two great playwrights from different cultures and different eras: William Shakespeare and August Wilson. Students will read, research, view live performances, write critical analyses and get hands-on experience in performance, playwriting, dramaturgy, directing, acting and design.
