Program Overview

UG London 2

Course Description

The course aims to develop an appreciation for the theatre not only as an art form, but as a highly disciplined community of people who aspire to push the boundaries of perception in society and the world at large. The course involves a combination of close readings of play texts and historical and theoretical materials with careful and critical analyses of 8 to 10 live performances. These performances range from large West End productions to small, out-of-the-way fringe theatres. Students also tour sites of theatrical and historical interest and attend performance workshops with professional companies.
