|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject will introduce students to modern drama through a study of seminal dramatic texts representing the various dramatic and performance movements that emerged from around 1890 to the mid-twentieth century. These movements will include, among others, realism, expressionism, symbolism, absurdist theatre, kitchen-sink, modern tragedy and political theatre. The texts and the genres they represent will be analysed through lectures, seminars and workshops, and there will be a focus on the plays in performance.
