Students write and develop new plays in response to the specific playwriting topic of the semester. Students will study topics such as modern adaptations of Greek or classic plays, or the body of work of one playwright and/or school of playwrights within their cultural and historical context. The course will explore processes; styles, techniques and theatrical choices by reading published and unpublished plays, and when relevant, prose, journals, letters, reviews, and interviews. Students will attend productions of relevant plays.
