This course examines theatre history through active research and inquiry into selected periods and genres of theatre. After reading and discussing a script, students will research primary and secondary sources to place the work in its artistic and cultural context. A short presentation of the research will follow. Then, students will develop a thesis and develop that idea through writing, performance, and/or visual presentation.
