Explore the history and heritage of the theatre of England and the theatre of Ireland. Study ranges from Elizabethan England through Ireland's finest playwrights. Investigations include study of dramatic forms and styles, production practices, and theatre in performance. Work in the course includes historical reading and research, script analysis, performance/audience experience, and critical analysis and response.
Attend a broad range of theatre in performance in London, Dublin, and Stratford. Productions at flagship national companies complement the productions of fringe and off-fringe companies. Explore the contexts of history, popular culture, theatre business and training. Trace history from medieval street pageants through Shakespeare's Globe, exploring the culture which surrounds theatre practice in London's West End and South Bank, and following the quest for an Irish national theatre.
