Requirements & Distribution:
Advisory Prerequisites:

Primary Instructor:

In this course students will have the opportunity to explore their own attitudes towards gender identity and the particular contributions that playwrights have made to the exploration of sex and gender in contemporary American theater. We will be exploring some groundbreaking work by Tennessee Williams as a prelude to more contemporary work by playwrights such as Eve Ensler, Claire Chafee and Tony Kushner. The class puts emphasis on reading and discussion, but the most important component will be script analysis through the process of rehearsal and performance. Students will also be encouraged to write and perform original material.

The course is recommended for students who have taken previous upper-level drama classes and are open to working on material with mature themes. An interview with the instructor is recommended before registering.
