Drama in English After 1900

This course will review and expand basic dramatic concepts through a detailed critical analysis of a broad range of (mainly 20th century British) dramatic representations, written and produced primarily for the stage but also adapted for film or television. In addition to the set texts (written and visual), the syllabus will also require that students attend several performances in a variety of local settings (plays and musicals). Grades will be based on a midterm and final (50%), weekly postings on Laulima (20%), short in-class presentations on specific scenes or segments (20%), and attendance.
