ENGL 233 - Modern American Drama

Credits: 3
This course explores American Drama from the late 19th century through the late 20th century. In reading such authors as Arthur Miller, Sam Shepard, Lorraine Hansberry, and Tony Kushner, students explore how this unique art form not only explored the turbulence of an ever-changing America, but in many ways affected the perceptions of American society. Along with close-readings of key plays, students will explore modern American drama in performance through screenings of plays as well as excursions to go see plays in local production.
Cross-listed: HUM-233
Prerequisite: ENGL-101
