Over the course of the semester students will study topics in playwriting such as modern adaptations of Greek or classic plays; the body of work of one playwright and/or school of playwrights within their cultural and historical contexts; a particular theatre style; and other subjects in contemporary playwriting practice. The course explores process, styles, techniques and theatrical choices in published and unpublished plays, and relevant prose, journals, letters, reviews, and interviews.
